MY TOP TEN BEST VALUE RED WINES 2016 a selection of superb wines which should represent great value listed by score and then alphabetical order: N° 10 - LACOSTE-BORIE (PAUILLAC) 17,5
2016 Lacoste-Borie 17,5
The nose is just perfect with bright blackberry juice notes and sensational pencil shavings - so classic. The mid-palate is smooth and polished with ripe fruit breaking through the whole with very attractive oak and also lovely amplitude. The finish is crunchy and refreshing with perfectly clean tannins and a snap of gravelly freshness. A sublime Lacoste-Borie with perfect balance and disarming immediacy, this is a wine which will sit alongside all of the First Wines in this commune with ease.
