    Everything a true second wine should be: totally reflective of the ideals of the Grand Vin, Ch Grand Puy Lacoste, true to its appellation, Pauillac, and most importantly of all, accessible and very customer friendly. A lovely earlier drinking style of high quality.

    The 2015 Lacoste-Borie is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. It has a slightly muted bouquet, tobacco-tinged black fruit that gently opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, foursquare in the mouth with that tobacco theme continuing. Linear, a little aloof at the moment, I would hope that more flesh can come through towards the spicy finish that cuts away a little swiftly.

    The second wine of Grand-Puy-Lacoste, the Lacoste-Borie offers good depth and plenty of immediacy. Plum, mocha and dark spice notes give the Lacoste-Borie much of its succulence. This plump, juicy Pauillac should drink well with minimal cellaring. Tasted two times.

    Soft and silky second wine of Grand Puy Lacost. Medium to full body, juicy fruit and a velvety tannic finish.

    Lovely bright fruit, with the freshness of 60% Cabernet bringing elegance and lift. Lovely for mid-term drinking.

    (60 Cabernet Sauvignon, 30 Merlot, 10 Cabernet Franc) Typically spot on, superbly accurate and perfectly balanced, this is a charming Lacoste-Borie and there is plenty of tension on the finish with fine-grained tannins and crunchy acidity to balance the fabulous, ebullient nose and palate. It will drink early giving a glimpse of the Grand-Puy-Lacoste theme tune, but played softly and gently to woo your senses. This is such a delicious creation in the first instance that you forget it is a second wine.

    60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc. Dark crimson. Racy, not concentrated but lots of drive. Quite early maturing. Sandpaper end. Drink 2023-2031

    The second wine of Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a wine for claret drinkers rather than points junkies. Typically floral and refined, with very gentle oaking, it’s a more serious wine than it seems at first, showing supporting tannins, a twist of vanilla spice and refreshing acidity. Drink: 2020-25

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.
