Tasting notes
The Lacoste Borie 2007 presents a nice ruby red color. It is a medium-bodied wine with a well-developed, ripe fruity, spicy, toasty and iron-scented bouquet. The flavors are soft, savory and round. The palate presents a beautiful structure supported by charming tannins. It is a very pleasant wine which will need few more years to mature.
