Winemaker and vineyard:
Lacoste Borie is the 2nd wine of Grand Puy Lacoste, a classed growth and one of the oldest Chateaux in the Medoc. It's a family affair, going back to the 16th Century. They're famed across the world for exceptional deep, dark and concentrated wines. At less than £30, this is a steal and a half.
