Chateau Lacoste-Borie Pauillac 2017: Tasting Notes & Food Pairing Delights

A Classic Pauillac with approachable charm, the Chateau Lacoste-Borie Pauillac 2017 delivers an enticing taste of the world-renowned Bordeaux region. This enticing red wine is crafted by the esteemed Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste, offering a delightful expression that reflects the Pauillac terroir while remaining approachable for earlier drinking.

On the Nose

The first impression of Chateau Lacoste-Borie 2017 is an aromatic delight. Deep inhales reveal classic Pauillac characteristics, dominated by aromas of black fruit. Think juicy blackcurrants, ripe plums, and a touch of blackberries. These dark fruit notes are complemented by a subtle hint of violets, adding a touch of floral elegance. As the wine opens up, a whisper of cedarwood and cigar box emerges, hinting at the subtle influence of oak ageing.

On the Palate

The palate confirms the promise of the nose, with a core of juicy black fruit flavours taking centre stage. The tannins are present but light and approachable, offering a pleasant structure without being overbearing. Hints of earth and spice emerge alongside the fruit, adding complexity to the flavour profile. The finish is delightfully long, leaving a lingering taste of dark fruit and a touch of oak.

Food Pairing Recommendations

Chateau Lacoste-Borie Pauillac 2017's medium-bodied style and approachable tannins make it a versatile food pairing companion. Here are some delectable dishes to pair with this delightful red:

  • Red Meat: This wine shines alongside grilled steaks, roast lamb, or venison casserole. The bold fruit flavours stand up well to the richness of red meat, while the tannins help to cut through fat.
  • Roast Vegetables: Earthy root vegetables like roast beetroot, parsnips, or carrots pair beautifully with Lacoste-Borie. The wine's savoury notes complement the roasted flavours, creating a harmonious combination.
  • Hard Cheese: Enjoy a cheese board featuring mature cheddar, Gruyere, or Comté with your Lacoste-Borie. The creamy texture of the cheese cuts through the tannins, while the bold flavours of the wine complement the cheese's richness.
  • Hearty Mushroom Dishes: Earthy mushroom flavours find a perfect match in Lacoste-Borie. Consider a rich mushroom risotto, a hearty pasta dish with a creamy truffle sauce, or pan-fried wild mushrooms on toast.
  • Lamb Stew: A comforting lamb stew is another excellent pairing option. The wine's fruit and spice notes complement the savoury flavours of the stew, while the tannins help to cleanse the palate between bites.

Serving Suggestions

For optimal enjoyment, serve this wine at a cool room temperature, ideally between 16-18°C. Decanting for 30 minutes before serving can help soften the tannins and allow the aromas to fully bloom.
