Tasting Notes

A blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc the Lacoste-Borie displays light briary and blackberry fruit on the nose, just a hint of cold black tea and truffle. Fine definition. The palate is quite supple on the entry, that Merlot adding a pleasant fleshiness to counter the precise Cabernet, a little short on the finish but very fresh and perhaps "clinical". Very lively and "classic". Drink 2016- Tasted March 2011.

The second wine of Grand Puy Lacoste. Always good value and usually made in a forward style for relatively early drinking. This year it is 35% of Grand Puy Lacoste's production - 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Lovely red fruit here. Aromatic on the nose and then lots of chewy red cherries on the palate. Mores density than we normally see here and a little kick of tannin on the finish so maybe this will benefit from a couple of years in bottle before being ready to drink?

The nose has all the fragrance of violets with bramble and cassis underneath. The sweetness on the palate is underpinned by red fruits giving an attractive freshness. The back palate is bright and fresh but there is enough sweet fruit to fill it out.
