Description

This is a very enjoyable wine. There’s subtle and welcoming grilled oak on the nose with smooth brambly fruits and acidity that is present but balanced. The tannins are well integrated with touches of menthol on the finish and a certain restraint that give clues to the appellation. It definitely works as an entry point to the main Grand-Puy-Lacoste bottling. Harvest was from 18 September to 4 October. 45% new oak. - Decanter91 

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. - WA87~89

The Winery

The history of Grand-Puy-Lacoste is fascinating in many ways. It is a family saga going back to the 16th century. The name Grand-Puy, already mentioned in documents from the Middle Ages, comes from the ancient term "puy" which means "hillock, small height". True to its name, the vineyard sits on outcrops with a terroir similar to that of the Médoc's first growths. Since the 16th century the property was passed down from generation to generation, until the current family, the Borie's, bought the property in the 1920s.
