Hitting the sweet spot
16 May 2020

The Lacoste Borie 2015 was something of a revelation to the J&B team. Prior to the 2015, we hadn’t really been very enthusiastic about Bruno Borie’s property in the western corner of St Julien. But, ever alert to a possible bargain, we nosed our glasses and WOW! a knock-out bouquet of flamboyant fruits and flowers struck us. This lavish, velvety offering tantalised our taste-buds with its seductive core of decadent dark berries and sheer energy. Was it the wrong glass or had Bruno performed a dramatic turnaround? Luckily, it was the latter; we’d uncovered one of the best-value buys of the vintage - a hedonistic, vivacious, exuberant, flavour packed claret that satisfies all the senses. It’s a Ducru Beaucaillou for the masses and all for a snip over £22 a bottle including taxes. We can’t endorse this wine enough – it’s pure pleasure in a glass. Don’t be put off by its relative youth, buy it and drink it now, or lay it down, either way, you’ll be delighted you discovered Lalande Borie 2015. “Dark berries with chocolate and lightly toasted oak on the nose. Opens to a full body with silky tannins and a focused and fine finish. Shows tension and beauty. Drink or hold. 93/100” - James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com    Read More
