    Description

    An aromatic and beautifully fresh wine from Pauillac

    The estate

    Located in the heart of the Pauillac appellation on the left bank of BordeauxChateau 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 vines are 38 years old on average.

    The vintage

    A very wet and mild winter encouraged both the restoration of water reserves and early vine budding, which began at the same time as lockdown in France. Although a snowy episode was recorded on 30 March, the milder spring conditions allowed the vines to develop in good conditions, despite alternations of rain increasing the risk of diseases on the vine. From mid-June, dry and hot conditions set in until the weekend of 12 August, which was marked by significant rainy spells which salvaged the vineyard. The alternation of hot days and cool nights in August was ideal for ensuring a good maturity of the grapes and achieving optimal tannic richness. Harvests began on 14 September with very hot weather. The grapes were healthy, concentrated, aromatic, with very ripe tannins.

    Winemaking and aging

    Manual harvests are followed by a double sort on a vibrating table before and after destemming. Vatting for 3 weeks. Aging in French oak barrels (75% new).

    Blend

    The 2020 Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (76%) and Merlot (24%).

    Tasting

    Color

    The wine is a bright and beautiful, deep and intense purple-red color.

    Nose

    With a beautiful mineral freshness, the nose harmoniously mixes fragrances of very ripe black fruits with violets and spices.

    Palate

    With a precise attack, the palate seduces with its directness as well as its ripe and delicate tannins. This perfectly balanced vintage delights with its elegance and freshness and a pure, aromatic and persistent finish. This 2020 Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste authentically expresses the richness and complexity of a great Pauillac terroir.
