Notes

If Xavier Borie's wonderful Grand Puy Lacoste doesn't offer enough value for money, then Lacoste Borie, the highly impressive second wine of this high flying 5th growth Chateau should do the trick! Produced from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc it is very much a little GPL with its beautifully Cabernet scented bouquet of lilacs, cassis and minerals. The palate is crunchy and black fruited with hints of juicy damsons. There is definitely greater precision to the fruit and the tannins are more refined than normal. This should be an excellent value for money Pauillac.

Notes
The 2015 Lacoste-Borie has a rather herbal bouquet with pencil shaving and smoke aromas, perhaps needing a little more flesh to come through. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grip. A nicely structured wine, with more breeding on the palate than on the nose. If the aromatics can improve this might turn out to be a fine 2015. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

Château Grand Puy Lacoste

Château Grand Puy Lacoste

A very old Chateau - it's first mention in official documents appears at the beginning of the XVIth century - this estate extends over 225 acres in a single plot of land to the south of Pauillac - which is where the original name "Grand-Puy" came from. Mr Lacoste added his name to the Château when he bought the property and kept it until the epidemic of phylloxera at the end of the XIXth century. GPL's reputation in the wine world will be down in part to Mr. Raymond Dupin, a legendary figure in the Medoc, who was proprietor until 1978 when he sold the estate to M. Borie.

Nowadays, François-Xavier Borie is managing things. He renewed the cellars of the Château just before producing the great vintage of 1982. The vinification and ageing of Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste is conducted with the same technique and attention to detail, as those of the other estates managed by Borie - such as Château Haut-Batailley.
