Estate Notes

Château Lalande-Borie 2009 was purchased in its original wooden case and comes from a great Bordeaux vintage.

Lalande-Borie is owned by the Borie family whose other properties include Ducru Beaucaillou, Grand Puy Lacoste and Haut Batailley no less - and the same skill and management goes into the handling of this Saint-Julien gem - which has taken leaps in quality over recent years under their ownership.

Lalande-Borie is currently managed by Bruno Borie, and the 25 hectare vineyard is surrounded by classic Cru Classés, and typically produces smooth, rich wines that mature more quickly than its more famous siblings.

Reviews

"This is stylish, with perfumy black tea and smoldering charcoal aromas followed by lightly mulled plum, fig and blackberry fruit. An echo of juniper shows on the mineral-edged finish." Wine Spectator

"Enticing, vibrant, surprisingly forthcoming aromas of cranberry and red cherry syrup. Shows more red fruits on the palate, with strawberry-rhubarb and cranberry cocktail flavors nicely complicated by a hint of citrus." Ian D'Agata
