Lacoste Borie 2016, Pauillac


£43.95 per bottle

ABV 13.5%


Lacoste Borie, the second wine of Ch Grand-Puy-Lacoste

"This is a beautifully fresh wine with lovely, juicy black cassis flavours. The day-night temperature changes of up to 20 degrees centigrade made a huge difference to the quality of the tannins, and GPL has some of the steepest slopes and best draining soils in Pauillac to cope with the wet early season (although this also meant some blockage of young vines during the drought). Overall they have produced a plush, easy drinking wine that offers great pleasure. 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, with a yield of 50hl/ha."
Jane Anson,, April 2017
