Wine Region: Bordeaux Saint-Julien - France
Grape: 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 55% Merlot.
"Dark berries with chocolate and lightly toasted oak on the nose. Opens to a full body with silky tannins and a focused and fine finish. Shows tension and beauty. Drink or hold." James Suckling
"The 2015 Lalande-Borie is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 55% Merlot. Picked from 26 September until 2-3 October, it has a surprising bouquet: high-toned and exotic for the vintage, very intense cassis and iodine aromas, perhaps needing just a little more complexity to come through, though I am sure it will by the time of bottling. The palate is more controlled at the moment, restores order as it were. The tannins are quite dense, lending weight to this Lalande-Borie, the acidity is nicely judged and the finesse finally comes through towards the finish." Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
Expert Rating: James Suckling, 93/100 | Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91/100.
About the winery: Chateau Lalande-Borie was created in the seventies by the Borie family, owners of Chateau Ducru-Beaucailllou, who purchased the Lalande terroir in Saint Julien and then added their name to the property. Led by Bruno Borie, the chateau is located in the west of the Saint Julien appellation and its 25 hectares of vines are planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Lalande-Borie is a Cru Bourgeois that beautifully expresses all of the qualities of its appellation: finesse, power, elegance and aromatic richness.
