Tasting Note:

It's always a pleasure to taste with Xavier and Emeline Borie. You know how they say how dogs resemble their owners, well perhaps the same is true with wines. These are charming, reserved wines, full of class. Gorgeous Cabernet perfume: small berries, graphite, cassis and violets. Such flowing savoury Cabernet fruit - everything is harmonious, nothing is excessive or out of place. Suave, detailed cherry fruit, wild plums and wood spice and gravelly briar fruit. Pure refinement and class, it flows effortlessly with a beginning, middle and long noble finish of granular, finely laced tannins. This is yet another superb effort from this high flying Fifth Growth Chateau. As a footnote, this is Xavier's fortieth vintage at GPL - we hope we'll be there to celebrate the 50th with him. Produced from 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot.
