Chateau-Grand-Puy-Lacoste, which we love at 12Bouteilles.com, is a fifth cru wine from Pauillac and is one of the best wines in Bordeaux, and many famous critics like Hugh Johnson agree that Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste should have a better ranking today. All this is possible thanks to the work of the Borie family, who in 1978 acquired this sleeping beauty“ from Bordeaux. They decided to revive this castle by bringing the family values ​​that are dear to them. A search for harmony, a sense of detail and conviviality. The goal is not to produce more but to produce better, by implementing the best innovations to improve the quality of the wine and to restore the noblest expression of the terroir, vintages after vintages.

This appellation counts 18 of the 61 Bordeaux classified crus, which makes it the name with the most. Located on the edge of the estuary, on the left bank of the Gironde. The soil of the Châteaux Grand-Puy-Lacoste is composed of gravel and sand ensuring an excellent drainage of the water and restore the heat accumulated during the day to ensure the harmonious maturation of the bunch. The vineyard of 55 hectares in one piece is particularly conducive to the varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon 75%, Merlot 20% and Cabernet Franc 5%. The vineyards, which are 38 years old on average, have been able to forge a strong identity by rooting themselves in the gravel soils of the vineyard. His wines, dark colors, with powerful but velvety tannins are considered the perfect type of classic Pauillac. His second wine, Lacoste Borie, is a great way to approach the Château’s signature.
