Wine Tasting Notes:
This wine has a beautiful, intense color, between deep-red and ruby-red, and a very elegant bouquet of black fruit, cedar, and toasty hints. Full-bodied and round on the palate with a generous structure and well—integrated oak. Beautiful long aftertaste with blackcurrant flavors.
Fine aging potential.
The grapes are both machine-harvested and hand-picked, with careful plot-by-plot vineyard management. Temperature-controlled fermentation. Aging for twelve months in oak barrels.
Recommended serving temperature: 16° — 18°C.
This wine's body and ﬁnesse make it the perfect accompaniment to Bordeaux style entrecote, ﬁlet of wild boar, rack of lamb, game birds, and medium—strong cheese.
The small Saint-Julien appellation has the highest proportion of great growths in all of Bordeaux. The famous route des grands Vins goes through the heart of the appellation, offering superb views of the Medoc.
Chateau Lalande was once part of Chateau Lagrange, and was bought by the current owners in 1964. The vineyard is planted in a single block on a gravel plateau.
