2017 Bordeaux Futures

Today one of my all time favorite, over achieving Bordeaux was released….Grand Puy Lacoste. This classic Pauillac punches way above its price point. Comes in Six Pack Wood Case. Also, Pichon Lalande was released yesterday and I neglected to mention that it comes in Six Pack Wood Cases and instead had the case price listed as 12btls. So now you can still own a OWC Case for 1/2 the price. Only pone six pack left of Pichon.

*2017 Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac
$79.25btl/$475.50 per case of six
(Decanter 94)

These guys often over-deliver in challenging years, and have done so yet again. As you would expect in a vintage that has produced such an excellent Lacoste Borie, this GPL is exceptional, a real success that’s juicy and carefully extracted. It has weight and impact, with a Pauillac tannic hold and presence. It’s one of my wines of the vintage, and a must buy. The balanced, sculpted, juicy black fruits fully deliver personality and signature style. Harvested 15-29 September, yielding 45hl/ha. 80% new oak. (JA) (4/2018)

*2017 Pichon Lalande Pauillac
$135.00btl/$810.00 per case
(Decanter 94)

If you just taste the big name Pauillacs, you would be hard-pressed to understand that 2017 has been a challenging year. This is one of my wines of the vintage, no question. It’s from 21ha, biodynamically farmed, with Vincent Masson as consultant. Just a few plots further away from the river were affected by frost. The slight austerity of 2017 is evident, with a savoury quality to the fruit, but this is exceptionally good, with plenty of stunning fruit and well defined tannins. The aromatics are very refined, and the intense cassis fruit doesn’t sacrifice any intensity or power. It demonstrates the energy that Comtesse has displayed so consistently in recent vintages, with gorgeous finesse and structure to the tannins. The new cellar has raised the level of Cabernet from 65% to 70+%, with 12% press wine. This is going to age extremely well. (JA) (4/2018)
