Château Tronquoy-Lalande

2007 vintage.

Historically the property had a reputation for producing wines with real backbone when young that needed years to come round. In recent years this has changed and new owner Martin Bouyges, who also controls grand cru classé Château Montrose, has accelerated the process of improving the quality of the wine while balancing earlier drinkability with ageworthiness. He has been assisted in this by the renowned consultant Jean-Bernard Delmas, who spent many years as technical director at Château Haut-Brion, and since his retirement by Hervé Berland, who joined from Château Mouton-Rothschild.

The robe is dark red. The nose has a woody hint and is very well structured with aromas and a touch of spices and mixed fruits. The mouth is fully complex, fruits and spices dominate due to the blending of the petit verdot (11%). It finishes beautifully, with fine and silky tannins.

Tasting Note:
Plum and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of herbs, licorice, and spice box are found in this round, ample, easy-going, silky-textured 2007
