Tasting Notes

  • NM

    Neal Martin, May 2013,
    Score: 88-90

    Tasted twice with consistent notes, the 2012 Lacoste Borie, a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, has a lifted, seaweed scented bouquet with fine definition, although it is not a complex bouquet. The palate is nicely balanced with fine, grainy tannins. This is an understated Pauillac, one that is finely tuned with an appealing, silky finish that lingers long in the mouth, although it just fades on the finish. Tasted April 2013.

  • JS

    James Suckling, April 2013,
    Score: 87-88

    A balanced and fresh wine with raspberries, minerals and flowers. Medium-to-full body, with integrated tannins and a medium finish. Fine tannin structure.

Producer

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

Grand Puy Lacoste sits on top of one of the steepest slopes in Pauillac, a whole 16 metres above the main flatlands! Hardly Himalayan, but the extra 16 metres of pebble-enriched soil results inparticularly excellent drainage. François-Xavier Borie is at the helm of this very impressive château which was purchased in 1978 from Monsieur Dupin.

Region

Pauillac

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
