2023 Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste is a Pauillac Fifth Growth estate that has been consistently outperforming its classification in recent years. A series of stellar performances continues with the newly-released 2023, a lovely example of this most quintessential of Clarets. As well as standard cases Grand Puy Lacoste also bottles 9L collection cases containing a double magnum, magnums and regular-sized bottles.

A classic expression of the Medoc’s most revered appellation, Grand Puy Lacoste always has a combination of quality, value and longevity that makes it a mainstay of many a Bordeaux collection. As Jane Anson says in Inside Bordeaux, it delivers a “complex, juicy, dark-fruited mouthful of all that is great about the appellation”. Given the quality and reputation of Pauillac, this is immense praise.
The 2023 is a lovely example of Grand Puy Lacoste that should greatly appeal to fans of the estate and also those who crave balanced, poised and classically proportioned Pauillac. Neal Martin found it “beautifully defined and focusedand found there’s an impressive linearity to this wine”William Kelley found it seamless and sensual, with good depth at the core, beautifully integrated tannins and a lively, charming profile”. Everything you could want from a good vintage of GPL.

The 2023 Grand Puy Lacoste was picked September 11 to 28 at 48hL/ha and matured in 75% new oak. It has a classic “GPL” bouquet with blackberry, pencil box and light marine scents, obviously not as powerful as the previous vintage, yet in typical style, beautifully defined and focused. Just a touch of cracked black pepper surfaces with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle but insistent grip, just a light bitter edge lending tension and nerve. I perceive good depth here, but this is not a powerhouse of a Pauillac (is GPL ever?). It fans out toward the finish whilst maintaining control. There’s an impressive linearity to this wine, and thus I suspect it will require less bottle-age compared to recent vintages. (2024) Drink 2029-2052

Aromas of cassis, cigar wrapper, pencil shavings and violets introduce the 2023 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and supple wine that’s seamless and sensual, with good depth at the core, beautifully integrated tannins and a lively, charming profile. It’s a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Merlot that was picked between September 11-28. (2024)
