Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste 2003

Cabernet Sauvignon,Merlot

Blackberry and licorice aromas, with full body, very fine tannins and a long finish. Very silky. So much for jammy wines in 2003. Very fresh and refined. Best after 2008. - WS92

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste 2003 presents an intense ruby red color.  On the nose, it offers a complex combination of blackfurrant, blackberry and cherry, with added hints of spices.  On the palate, this wine shows its richness.  Its structure is harmoniously full-bodied and the tannins are well-balanced.  Its superb breeding is evident in the splendid length of the finish.  This vintage has already started to express its personality but it will also evolve wonderfully with ageing, developing as it does ever more complex flavours to give increasing pleasure. - Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

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 Médoc's first growths. Since the 16th century the property was passed down from generation to generation, until the current family, the Borie's, bought the property in the 1920s.
