After the VINEXPO lull, Chateaux owners have been making up for lost time with a flurry of releases. 

Despite the British bank holiday, Monday saw the release of a fine quartet: Bernadotte (£140/case), Lacoste Borie (£175/case), Chasse Spleen (£210/case) and Fonbel (£165/case). Bernadotte was delicious and improvements by the Pichon Lalande/Roederer team are clearly paying off; not a green note in sight, this is a really polished, fleshy offering.

Xavier Borie's Grand Puy Lacoste and Haut Batailley regularly feature in our best value selections and for those looking for a bargain Pauillac, Lacoste Borie (the second wine from GPL) is a snip at £175/case.
