‘The 2020 Grand-Puy-Lacoste fulfills its promise from barrel. It has a very sophisticated and complex bouquet with black fruit, pencil shavings and light estuarine scents, beautifully defined and focused. The palate has real intensity and concentration, the precision belying a very intense GPL not unlike the 2016 with a persistent graphite-infused finish that is just pure finesse. Magnificent. 2027-2055’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 96/100

‘This full-bodied red builds on the palate in a fantastic way with tight, compact tannins that grow and grow on the finish. Plenty of blackcurrant and graphite character and a flavorful finish. Same level as the excellent 2016.’ – James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, 96/100

‘Milk chocolate, blackcurrants, some cinnamon ,floral spice notes, cedar, touch of liquorice. Smooth and supple, lovely energy and vibrancy here, really quite high-toned and in focus, lovely precision to the details here - the tannins are firm, slightly coarse and grainy but do so well to give the structure in the mouth - really give the frame while the flavour and the acidity does the talking. I like the combination of fruit and texture and acidity, feels serious while maintaining energy, focus and drive. Lovely lightness of touch, flows along the palate, I also love the red fruit aspects - strawberry, red cherry, bright, seering, really so joyful here with acidity that lasts and lasts. But a lovely crunch and bite to the tannins overall and lovely fresh ending. Long. wide, open, generous and friendly. Finessed and refined. True signature here where they don’t push too hard, not too heavy on the extraction. 2026-2046’ – Georgina Hindle, Decanter, 96/100

‘The 2020 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is excellent, offering up aromas of cassis and plums mingled with pencil shavings, violets and loamy soil framed by a touch of creamy new oak. Medium to full-bodied, pure and fleshy, with lively acids, powdery tannins and good depth at the core, its supple, charming style belies considerable aging potential. It's a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot. 2025-2050’ – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 94+/100

Producer information Grand-Puy-Lacoste is one of the oldest in the Médoc with its history dated back to the 16th century. From the 16th century until 1920, the property remained in the same family, and in 1978 was passed on to the Borie family. Since then, major renovations have been done on the property and the focus has been placed on the quality of the wines, rather than quantity. The 55 hectare vineyard is planted to 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, with the average age of the vines at 38 years.
