Finest & rarest - Château GRAND PUY LACOSTE. Pauillac, Bordeaux

2011 Château GRAND PUY LACOSTE, 5me Cru. Pauillac, Bordeaux

Bin: 777
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Pauillac is the central and most prestigious area in the Médoc. GPL is on a gravel outcrop (so typical of the region, and the key to the quality of its Cabernet).
Grape Variety: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot; matured in oak (two thirds new) for 20 months.
Producer: Owned by the Borie family since 1978, this is one of the best 'fifth growths' in the Médoc.
Vintage: 2011 An early-drinking year. Too many clarets in 2011 are green and mean; this, however, has the ripeness to escape that criticism.
Cellar Potential: 2018-28; at its peak around 2022 but very drinkable already.

£75.00 per bottle
