Chateau Lalande

Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot

Style: Round and elegant on the palate with a good finish

St Julien is a mid-Médoc appellation lying between Margaux to the south and Pauillac to the north.  It is sometimes said that its wine can be divided into two types: those from the south which are smoother and more akin to the wines of Margaux and those from the north which are more powerful like those of Pauillac. The grape varieties in St-Julien may include Cabernet Sauvignon which predominates, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec.  Chateau Lalande is made principally of Cabernet Sauvignon with some additional Cabernet Franc and Merlot.   Aromas of black fruit combine well with oak notes from long barrel aging and the wine is round and elegant on the palate with a good finish.  A great wine to keep for many years.  Ideal with grilled meats, lamb, beef or venison as well as poultry.  A bronze winner at the Concours de Bordeaux Vins d’Aquitaine in 2014 and a star in Le Guide Hachette des Vins in the same year.
