Marks and reviews
Located in the heart of the Pauillac appellation, on Bordeaux’s Left Bank, Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste took its present form in 1855, although it was built as early as the 16th century. The wine estate was marked by the passage of Raymond Dupin from 1930 to 1978. He then sold the property to the Borie family in 1978, who have since carried out numerous renovations. Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste is today one of the most representative wines of the Pauillac appellation.
Château Lacoste-Borie is the estate’s Second Wine.
Château Lacoste-Borie 2022 is a Pauillac wine that stems from a 90-hectare vineyard, of which 60 are in a single block. The vines are 38 years old on average and are planted on deep gravel hilltops.
A mild and moderately rainy winter advanced budburst at the end of March. Under good weather conditions, flowering was rapid and uniform. The spring, like the summer, was marked by alternating hot and rainy spells. Veraison began on 13 July, with warm days and cool nights ensuring that the grapes gradually ripened. The harvest began historically early on 7 September.
This Château Lacoste-Borie 2022 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (56%), Merlot (35%) and Cabernet Franc (9%).
