The 2nd label of Grand Puy Lacoste, this is well made wine with aging potential. I drank some 1985 & 1986 recently and both showed very well. Classic Claret.
|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.
