This is bright, with extremely well-placed, juicy blue fruits with coffee touches, and a gorgeous sense of energy. It's a definite buy in this vintage, and should be great value. Technical director Christel Spinner has done a great job of delivering a focussed, finessed wine. I wouldn't wait too long to enjoy this, as it already has lots to enjoy. Harvested 15-29 September, yielding a fairly normal 49hl/ha, so we can safely say no frost here.Drinking Window 2022 - 2036

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Lacoste-Borie gives up notes of warm cassis, Morello cherries and wild blueberries with hints of pencil shavings and bay leaves. Medium-bodied, the palate has a lively line and well-played, soft tannins with an herbal lift on the finish. Drinking Window : 2020 - 2030. 89+

The 2017 Lacoste-Borie is a soft, easygoing wine to drink now and over the next few years. Sweet tobacco, mint, cedar and dried cherry give this mid-weight Pauillac lovely shades of complexity to match its mid-weight personality.

The 2017 Lacoste Borie was picked from 15 to 29 September, cropped at 49hl/ha. It has a clean, fresh and slightly earthy bouquet, what you might call “classic” in style, perhaps not quite as precise as the 2016 but then again, few 2017s are. The palate is medium-bodied with firm and strict tannin, a little raw at the moment with a small attenuation on the slightly rough-hewn finish. Not bad although I would like to see more finesse by the time of bottling. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

The second wine from Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste is also a solid effort. The 2017 Lacoste-Borie checks in as 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc (from slightly higher yields). It offers plenty of dark, earthy fruit, some minerality and tobacco, medium body, and a silky, nicely balanced style on the palate. It’s going to drink nicely in its youth.
