Tasting Note:

It is always a joy to taste Xavier Borie's Grand Puy Lacoste, there is such elegance to the fruit here and a wonderful sense of cohesion and effortless charm. The 2015 is crafted from 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. This is a classic GPL with perhaps even more refinement that usual. The profile is one of violets, pure Cabernet fruits, pencil shavings and Asian spice. There is an ethereal character to the fruit, it is velvety, sleek and complex yet so refreshing and almost weightless. There is a stunning structure with honed tannins and mouth-watering acidity. One of the finest Grand Puy Lacostes we can remember tasting.
