Tasting note


The 1981 Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a testament to the timeless elegance of Pauillac wines. With an average vine age of 38 years and grown on deep coarse gravel, this wine showcases the terroir's exceptional ability to produce wines with character. The handpicked grapes, carefully selected before and after de-stemming, undergo a meticulous vinification process, followed by a long maceration period. Aged in French oak barrels, with 75% being new each vintage, for up to 18 months, this wine has developed a harmonious blend of ripe berry fruit and spicy oak. The palate is graced with soft tannins, making it remarkably easy to enjoy now. It is light in style, yet carries the signature Pauillac tannic hold and presence, with a juicy, flavorful finish that includes notes of blackcurrant and graphite. Decant for an hour to fully appreciate its complexity and serve alongside robust dishes like roast lamb or grilled steak.
