Chateau Lalande Borie, Saint Julien, Bordeaux, France, 2014
Grapes: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc matured for 12 months in 30% new oak
From the same, high-quality stable as Jean-Eugene Borie's Château Ducru-Beaucaillou. A medium-bodied wine with dark fruit flavours and a spicy finish. From the negociant Maison Joanne.
"It offers light leafy, brambly red berry fruit on the nose, nicely defined but missing a little intensity. Likewise the palate is balanced and quite elegant, yet I was seeking more body and greater sense of energy on the finish. As such, I would be drinking this over the next seven or eight years, no longer."
87/100 points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, March 2017
Pair with any roast red meat dishes, or hard cheeses such as Cheddar or Gouda.
