Château Tronquoy-Lalande Bottle 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Tronquoy Lalande (a blend of 51% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Petit Verdot) *boasts a dense purple color along with a beautiful bouquet of boysenberries, spring flowers, black currants, and a hint of ink, a full-bodied, supple, opulent mouthfeel, and a long finish.* It should drink nicely for 10-15 years.Robert Parker, Wine Advocate*We will notify you on arrival Summer 2012.*

This remarkable growth from Saint-Estèphe, very well known in the beginning of the XVIII century, is considered from that era on, to be one of the best growths of the region. Since July 2006, the purchase of the domain by Martin and Olivier BOUYGUES brought a new breeze highlighting all the qualities of this excellent growth. The soil of Château Tronquoy-Lalande is characterised by its remarkable site being on one of the highest points of the rural district of Saint-Estèphe, and this exceptional gravelly soil spreads out evenly in its vineyard.

This is smoky and fleshy, with solid plum, baked fig and dark cherry preserves flavors, followed by hints of cedar and roasted tobacco that should emerge more with modest cellaring. Drink now through 2019.

Deep ruby-purple. Very refined, classic Bordeaux aromas of violet, cedar and graphite; the petit verdot and cabernet sauvignon really dominate the merlot. Sweet, ripe red berry fruit shows an almost liqueur-like creaminess, but a peppery element and good underlying minerality lend grip to the finish, which features slightly dry, mouthcoating tannins and nice cedary persistence. A very successful wine that calls for a few years of cellaring and should drink well until 2025.
