Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste is one of the oldest properties in the Médoc, dating back to the 16th century. This was made in the Dupin era, which extended from 1932 until it was purchased by the Borie family in 1978. The vineyards have remain little changed since the classification of the Médoc in 1855: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, with some vines dating back to 1947. Grand-Puy-Lacoste earned its reputation for producing classic Pauillac--full-bodied, tannic, concentrated and ageworthy, with currant fruit and undercurrents of cigar box and truffle. In his book "Vintage Wine," critic Michael Broadbent writes of the 1966 Grand-Puy-Lacoste: "This always is a long-distance runner, and a château whose wine I now buy every vintage. My first taste of the '66 was a pleasant, piquant Justerini & Brooks' bottling in 1971. At a Decanter tasting in 1979, softer than Ducru; a well-developed, characteristically sinewy classic in the mid-1980s. Last tasted April 1993. **** and still developing."
