Francois Xavier Borie 2015 Pauillac

Francois Xavier Borie Grand Puy Lacoste.   74% Cabernet Sauvignon - 23% Merlot - 3% Cabernet Franc   

 Big, black and bold, this is a serious Pauillac with the typical acidity of 2015. With a bit more charm and bright fruit, this would rate more highly. Better from 2019.  92 Points, James Suckling,  December 2018

Grand Puy Lacoste 2015 will go down in history as one of the great vintages, a vintage which demonstrates the great class and wonderful quality of the vineyard. Made with a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon (74%) the wine has a lovely structure and balance, which amply demonstrate the complexities and opulence of this truly wonderful vintage. The wine is an intense, deep red. The nose is opulent with notes of black fruit and ripe blackcurrants. These notes are complemented by notes of spice and violets, all with a lovely freshness, underlined by the presence of cabernet franc (3%) in the final blend. On the palate the wine is dense and precise, the aromas and textures build on the mid-palate and are carried by rich, powerful, well rounded tannins. The 2015, precise and complex, with freshness and excellent length is a very classy wine indeed. It compares well with the best vintages of Grand Puy Lacoste and its complexity is a wonderful expression of terroir. Winery Notes

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. From Since the 16th century the property remained attached to a single family from generation to generation, in a direct line through marriage until 1920, before connecting with another family in 1978 — the Borie.
