The 2014 Lacoste-Borie was showing a little earthiness on the nose, perhaps not quite as pure and as defined as I would have been hoping. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannin, grainy in texture with brambly red fruit laced with baking powder and white pepper towards what feels like a light finish. I must admit that given the barrel showing, I was hoping for more from this. Wine Advocate

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. 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.
