Chateau Lacoste Borie Pauillac 2010
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pauillac|
|Brand||Chateau Lacoste Borie|
Wine AdvocateA 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".
Wine SpectatorFeatures a solid black currant, licorice and tobacco core, with well-embedded tarry grip. More approachable than most, showing solid vintage and AOC character. Drink now through 2020.
