2015 Lacoste-Borie 17+

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)
