2000 Château Grand Puy Lacoste, Pauillac

2000 Château Grand Puy Lacoste, Pauillac

Ref: BORD0022
Red  |  Still  |  13% ABV

A vineyard was initially planted here in the 16th century. In the 18th century the property was owned by a family called Dejean, who also owned Lynch Bages next door. A part of their vineyard was sold off to a M Ducasse and became known as Grand Puy Ducasse, thye rest becoming the basis for Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste. The Dejean family, however, marketed the wine under the name Grand Puy Saint Guiron, the name Lacoste surplanting Saint Guiron when one of the Dejean girls married a M Lacoste. For much of the 20th century, Grand Puy Lacoste was owned by the sybaritic Raymond Dupin, until his death in 1978, when the chateau and vineyard became the property of the Borie family, owners of Ducru Beacaillou and erstwhile proprietors of Châteaux Caronne Ste Gemme and Haut Batailley.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

"The 2000 Château Grand Puy Lacoste is an exceptional wine from Xavier Borie. It has a brilliant nose of blackberry, crushed stone, graphite and cedar. Putting it to one side for ten to 15 minutes reveals subtle mint-like aromas that whisk you straight to Pauillac. The palate is smooth and silky, cloaking the tannic frame of this GPL so that you barely notice it. But that will stand it in good stead for the long-term, the cornerstone of all great wines from this estate. Then there is that hint of spice on the aftertaste—the show ain't over yet. Served alongside a magnum of Pichon Baron 2000, I would say that at the moment, it does not quite possess the same level of precision. However, it remains a magnificent Pauillac to cherish long-term. Tasted January 2016." Neal Martin

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
