"Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a longtime favourite of Bordeaux insiders. It usually performs much better than its pedigree. It is generally rich, ripe, fruity and intense - in a word, it delivers the goods and often more than that. Grand-Puy-Lacoste is one of the best value wines in Bordeaux." Robert Parker

'Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste has a long history of consistently making excellent wine. Today it is justly regarded as a Super-Second. The wine is full, firm, long-lasting, ripe and almost creamy-rich. It has a lot of breed. A classic Pauillac at a very high level of quality.'
