Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(WA=89+) 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.
(AG=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.
