Grand Puy Lacoste 2009 hit an all-time high today when it traded at £600 per 12×75. This is an increase of 25% on its trade price of £480 at the beginning of 2016.
Despite this climb, the wine is still trading at a small discount to the Chateau’s equally scored 2010 vintage which last saw activity on the market at £620.
Robert Parker described the 2009 as, “very concentrated as well as velvety-textured, it is a beauty of finesse, balance, purity and nobility.” He awarded it 95 points.
Several other Grand Puy Lacoste vintages have also hit new highs this year. These include the 2007 (RP 89-91) at £315 and the 2006 (RP 94) at £425 – both in September. In August, the 92-point 2005 reached £760.
