    Lacoste Borie, Variation Case, 2022, 1x3L, 2x1.5L, 4x75cl, 2022

    Lacoste Borie is always one of our favourite second wines, but we don't think we've ever encountered such a serious, texturally alluring example as the 2022. This smells, tastes and feels like a very grown-up wine. Opening with a classic GPL bouquet of flowers, dried lavender, blackcurrant and a sheen of blue and purple fruits, it leads to a juicy, supple core of of fragrant berries – fluid and perfumed, this is an absolute delight, finishing with succulent, sweet tannins – perfectly pitched, a really well-proportioned Lacoste Borie. Fabulous! 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc.

    The 2023 Lacoste-Borie was picked September 11 to 28 at 48hL/ha. It bursts with red fruit on the nose—raspberry and wild strawberry—forward and quite generous in keeping with the vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly grainy tannins on the entry. Moderately deep, it tapers slightly toward the graphite-infused finish. This Deuxième Vin has an easy-drinking sensibility and should be broached over the next decade.

    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.
