NEW RELEASE : Bordeaux 2019 en primeur - Château Grand Puy Lacoste

June 2020 

Château Grand Puy Lacoste was just released onto the market this morning.
 
I haven’t tasted the wine this vintage, but I think the price is remarkably fair – indeed the Borie family at Grand Puy Lacoste have never become carried away with ambitious release pricing, so one could easily argue that there was no necessity for dramatic reduction. This is surely one of the most consistent of Pauillac Châteaux….
 
The release pricing for recent vintages is as follows (source: Liv-ex, quoted in bond)
 
2019       £270 per 6
2018       £336 per 6
2017       £324 per 6
2016       £367 per 6
2015       £247 per 6
 
If the wine lives up to Neal Martin’s review, just published this morning, it will offer significant value in this vintage.
 
2019 Château Grand Puy Lacoste

95-97 points, Neal Martin

The 2019 Grand Puy Lacoste is deep purple in colour. Initially the bouquet is tight and so I left my sample for 15-20 minutes to open. It rewards patience with a beguiling mélange of pure blackberry, raspberry, crushed violet and pencil shavings, very focused and mineral-driven. The palate is medium-bodied with finely chiseled tannins. Compared to the robust, tannic GPL's of old, this is much more lithe and approachable, yet it still bears the DNA of this Pauillac estate. It might not possess the flair of other 2019 Left Banks, but that it is not what I seek from this estate. Classy and full of breeding - quintessential Pauillac. Drink : 2025-2060
 
Please let us know of your interest.
 
All the best,
 
Simon
