Grand Puy Lacoste 1990

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste

29

Along with the 1982, 2000, and 2005, the 1990 is one of those monumental Grand Puy Lacostes that you can’t have enough of. Still inky/blue/purple-colored to the rim, it boasts a gorgeously sweet, pure nose of creme de cassis, spring flowers, and a hint of wet rocks. The wine is full-bodied, plush, and expansive with impressive levels of glycerin and purity as well as an endearing texture. This 1990 is evolving at a glacial pace, but the sweetness of the tannins and low acidity ensure a delicious treat whenever a bottle is opened. It should evolve for another 20-25 years.

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste is a producer of highly rated fine wines, located in the Pauillac region in Bordeaux, France. According to the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, the premier red wine Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste holds the status of Fifth Growth.

The Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste can be found in the town of Pauillac, spanning around 36 hectares in vineyards. Common to the region, the vineyards have a limestone base with a deep gravel top soil. The grape selection is roughly 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, with 20% Merlot and the remaining 5% Cabernet Franc.

On average, Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste produces around 12,000 cases of wine every year. It also shares part of the name with Grand Puy Ducasse, another winery on the same hill. “Grand Puy” is the name of the small gravelly hill on which (both) the estates are located. This prestigious wine producer has had several names throughout the years, due to the daughters of the owning families getting married; since the daughter married Francois Lacoste, it retains the name Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste.
