Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste, Pauillac 2016
A relatively recent acquisition for the Borie family, having taken on the château in 1978, François-Xavier and his wife Marie-Hélène undertook a complete renovation of the 90 ha property and cellars upon purchase. They had their three children there, of whom their daughter Emeline is now directly involved in communication and PR responsibilities for the château. The global appreciation for Grand-Puy-Lacoste and the second wine Lacoste-Borie stems from François-Xavier’s belief in lower fermentation temperatures and soft extraction. Like the Barton family, the Borie family enlist the advice of Eric Boissenot, his influence helps perfect the elegant restraint of these wines.
