In a nutshell:
Lovely 2015 vintage of the second wine of Chatea Grand-Puy-Lacoste.
Lacoste Borie is always very good value considering the site and the estate and this, from the excellent 2015 vintage, is no exception. A joyful wine made a slightly more forward style to be drunk younger that its big brother, but still serious and worthy of respect. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc hand harvested and aged for at least 14 months in barrel. Juicy black cherry and redcurrant, floral and cedar aromas lead onto a medium-to-full bodied palate, soft and silky with light tannins and a long length.
92/100 - Tim Atkin MW, 17+/20 - Matthew Jukes
