Food Pairings for Chateau Garraud Lalande de Pomerol
Decent Bordeaux from Pomerol. Smoothness provided by the merlot with a bit of spice from the cab franc. There's a touch of green vegetable and mustiness but this is receding with some air time. Not overly complex but there is some nice dark fruit, decent acidity and fairly tame tannins.
Starts out with bold cassis flavors with some nice nutmeg spice on the nose. Leathery mid palate that deepens into a finish of chocolate and mocha.
For everyday drinking, this suits my price point. Nose was floral and fragrant, immediately signalled some cabernet franc. Fruit was luscious cherry and raspberry. Low tannicity. Short on the finish and a bit thin on the end. Great table wine. Its a 2005, but definitely good for now.
I really enjoyed this wine - even as it only was left to breathe for 30 mins. It was lighter compared to the 4 or 5 different bordeauxs from St Emilion that I have recently had. I am now moving to explore wines in Pomerol. This one, from highly regarded Nony family, is actually from Pomerol satellite, Lalande-de-Pomerol, which characteristically is lighter. It had the taste of black fruits and vanilla, and finished really smoothly. I like eating with my reds, but this one I could drink on its own.
Very good with duck
External Reviews for Chateau Garraud Lalande de Pomerol
Possesses great elegance, with a complex bouquet of red fruits, full body, a soft, lush, fleshy palate and a long finish. It will age well for a decade or more.
Aromatic smoke, plum, and cedar scents prelude crisp fruit that finishes dry on the palate. This terrific wine is tailor-made for that steak you've been craving.
