The richness and powerful aromas of a fine red wine from Pauillac

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
The Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste vineyard represents 90 hectares of vines planted on outcroppings of deep gravel. 60 hectares of vines are planted in one piece.

The vintage
This 2019 vintage was a great success for Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste. The mild, dry winter allowed for an early bud burst. The arrival in April of cooler temperatures slowed down the vegetative cycle in the vineyard. The particularly hot and dry summer created a strong water stress, which slowed the growth of the vine and paced out the ripening process of the fruit. In September the light rain allowed the fruit to reach perfect maturity in time for the harvest.

The winemaking
Manual harvest from September 20 to October 4. Double sorting. Fermentation for 3 weeks.

The aging
Aging in 75% new French oak barrels. Blended in December 2019.

The blend
Cabernet sauvignon (83%), merlot (17%).

The tasting
Tasted as a wine future, the Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2019 displays a deep and shiny red color. On the nose, the wine reveals powerful aromas of black fruits, like cherries, enhanced by hints of spices and menthol. On the palate, the attack is dense, precise and complex. The aromatic and balanced finish is underlined by a nice freshness. This Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2019 expresses a beautiful richness and a great complexity, consistent with the signature of Grand-Puy-Lacoste.
