Finesse and freshness, a seductive Pauillac wine

The estate

Located in the heart of the Pauillac appellation on the left bank of Bordeaux, Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste took its current form in 1855, although it was built in the 16th century. The wine estate was greatly influenced during its ownership by Raymond Dupin from 1930 to 1978. Dupin ceded the property to the Borie family, who have carried out numerous renovations since then. Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste is today one of the most representative estates of the Pauillac appellation.

The vineyard

Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2021 is a Pauillac wine that stems from a 90-hectares vineyard, of which 60 are planted in a single block. The vines are 38 years old on average and are planted on deep gravelly outcroppings.

The wine

Comprising a volume of 12 bottles (9 liters), this "Caisse Variation Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2021" contains 1 Double-Magnum, 2 Magnums and 4 bottles. The variation in bottle sizes is an invitation to discover, through these three different sizes, the evolution of Pauillac wine over the years.

The vintage

A mild, wet winter preceded a dry spring, alternating between a warm month of March and a particularly cold month of April. Thanks to its location near the estuary, the vineyard was protected from frost. The heavy rainfall in June gave way to a cool, wet month of July and a dry but cool August. These conditions enabled the vineyard to develop gradually and evenly until the harvest.

Vinification and aging

The manual harvest is followed by a double sorting on a vibrating table before and after destemming. Vatting time for around 3 weeks. Aged in French oak barrels (75% new).

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (85%)

Merlot (15%).
