One of the most sought-after Pauillac producers in Bordeaux circles, Grand Puy Lacoste is planted to 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, with old vines averaging 40+ years. Its Fifth Growth status does not indicate its true level of quality, which hovers in the 3rd Growth status. Located a kilometer from Lynch-Bages, this estate produces wines with intense cassis flavors, lots of power and delicious purity.

Wine SpectatorThis is on the charming side of the spectrum, with a rounded hint to the mix of violet-infused plum and cherry fruit, accented by notes of singed cedar and sandalwood. Light black tea and warm cast iron accents pervade the finish, returning this to a more typical Pauillac profile. Best from 2020 through 2032. 10,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is medium garnet-purple colored with a nose of red and black currants, cedar chest and roses with a touch of dusty earth. The medium-bodied mouth is chewy, with lively fruit and good balance.
