  • Neal Martin, April 2023, Score: 89-91

    The 2022 Lacoste-Borie, raised in 50% new oak, has an ebullient bouquet with cranberry, raspberry and wilted rose petal scents. There is a trace of melted tar. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins. The 2022 shows a lovely balance, somehow carefree, with completeness and what I suspect will be enticing drinkability. That said, it has the structure to age. Drink 2026-2043

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 90-92

    A blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, the 2022 Lacoste-Borie is as good a wine from this label as I can remember tasting. Exhibiting aromas of cassis, charcoal and violets, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and lively, with excellent depth and persistence.

  • Decanter, April 2023, Score: 93

    Deep vibrant nose, aromatic and scented with floral notes and soft hints of liquorice, earth, blackcurrants, black cherries and herbal-edged raspberries. Succulent and sharp, zingy and tangy straight away. Lovely purity and focus, smooth but fine-grained tannins make the impact and give the delicate but so appealing structure. Lovely precision and generosity here, feels elegant and lively with good fruit persistence, mouthwatering acidity and liveliness. Intense but pure, layered but almost light, with an undercurrent of wet stone and graphite giving the mineral touches alongside subtle spice. Well made and so easy to enjoy. 3.65pH. A yield of 38hl/ha. 60% grand vin, 40% second wine. Eric Boissenot consultant.

  • Goedhuis, May 2023, Score: 91-93

    A bright and energetic style, with fresh cranberry fruit and a summer herb garden scent. Relaxed and easy with its gentle free flowing flavours. The tannins have been carefully managed so they sit beneath the charm of the fruit and the light freshness at the back of palate provides additional appeal. Excellent within its second wine category.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 92-93

    A fine and fresh red with currants and chocolate, cedar and spice. Medium body. Savory and juicy. Delicious finish already. 56% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot and 9% cabernet franc.

  • Jane Anson, April 2023, Score: 92

    This is full of serious Pauillac tannins, great quality, with plenty of depth to the black fruits and acidity to underpin the palate. Firm in its framework, serious and with clear ability to soften over ageing, good quality, softened by edges of damp fern and rose petal aromatics. 3.6ph, 40% of production in this wine. 50% new oak for ageing.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 17.5+

    This is yet another Lacoste-Borie that over-delivers from the off. An immediate attack of glorious perfume on the nose and the palate follows with upright, strictly marshalled fruit, cassis-soaked and Pauillacais. The finish is brisk and spicy, with hints of skin tannin and seed traction, bringing some drama and tension to the chassis. Lovely and refreshing while retaining an air of deliciousness and flair, this is a fantastic wine.

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.
