A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot, this traditional Bordeaux from Pauillac fairs well above its Fifth Growth Classification. The focus this vintage was careful sorting, and pickers were given sheets with nine different photographs of unripe berries that they were to avoid placing in the basket. Two tables were used to sort in the cellars. The wines reached 13.3% alcohol. The predominance of Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the richness and the immense potential of the deep coarse gravel that is part of the terroir found at Grand-Puy-Lacoste. This particular wine is hand harvested, followed by a three week maceration, and aged in French oak barrels (75% new oak) for between 16-18 months.

Tasting Notes: Earth, cedar, cassis, forest flor scents, medium body, soft tannins, and a crisp, fresh cranberry and cassis finished. Pronounced on the palate, with structure that is both elegant and balanced.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The dense ruby/purple-colored 2011 Grand Puy Lacoste exhibits a charming, open-knit bouquet of red and black fruits. It is a savory, medium-bodied, flavorful, well-endowed Pauillac from Xavier Borie that can be enjoyed over the next 10-15+ years.
