2015 Château Tronquoy-Lalande, St.-Estèphe
SKU: B230Regular price $49.95
Second Growth Château Montrose purchased neighboring vineyard Tronquoy-Lalande—and the wine they made from it is one of Bordeaux’s great insider picks. It has classic St.-Estèphe elegance, but at a quarter of the price of its Grand Cru Classé cousin.
Shows a deep purple-ruby color. Classic savory aromas of cedar plank, saddle leather, violets, and allspice perfectly complement the fresh intensity of black cherry, red currant, and Damson plum. Medium-bodied and elegant, the wine draws you in with flavors of cherry, blackberry, cedar, and leather. As the wine glides across the palate, it picks up spice and dried herbal notes, with a firm grip to the finish. A gorgeous expression of St.-Estèphe power delivered with subtlety and grace. Drink now–2035.
