2016 CHATEAU GRAND-PUY-LACOSTE Lacoste Borie 75cl (Bordeaux, France)
Style - Bold
Grapes - 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc
Tasting - We love this wine. For a slightly more sober opinion check out Neal Martin, of The Wine Advocate, and his review: "It has a clean and precise bouquet, not as complex as some of its peers, yet with thoroughly enjoyable raspberry and blackcurrant leaf tinged with cedar. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy, slightly dry tannin on the entry, hints of dark chocolate interlacing the black fruit with a touch of cracked black pepper on the finish."
FYI: This is the second wine of top Pauillac Grand-Puy-Lacoste managed by François-Xavier Borie.
