Wine Advocate 95 points - Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. There is a strong marine influence on the Grand Puy Lacoste 2010: seaweed and brine infused into the black fruit. It is very well defined and focused, building in intensity in the glass. The palate is silky smooth on the entry - very plush and sensual - with a cashmere texture that indicates some beautifully integrated creamy oak. It fans out wonderfully towards the finish, perhaps a little more modern in style than its peers but still beautifully crafted. Tasted January 2014. (Mar 2014)

The history of Grand-Puy-Lacoste is fascinating in many ways. It is a family saga going back to the 16th century. The name Grand-Puy, already mentioned in documents from the Middle Ages, comes from the ancient term ”puy” which means ”hillock, small height”. True to its name, the vineyard sits on outcrops with a terroir similar to that of the Medoc’s first growths. From Since the 16th century the property remained attached to a single family from generation to generation, in a direct line through marriage until 1920, before connecting with another family in 1978-the Borie.
