Well stored bottle, No problems whatsoever Dark web info, Chateau Lalande Borie is a relatively new estate in the Medoc. The vineyard was initially created when the Borie family purchased 18 hectares of vines from Chateau Lagrange in 1970. To that, they added 12 more hectares of vines from various other growers, some of which needed planting.
Things changed with the 2018 vintage when the estate was renamed Le Petit Ducru.
Chateau Lalande Borie Vineyards, Terroir, Grapes, Winemaking
The 25-hectare, Left Bank vineyard is planted to 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc. The vineyard has a terroir of gravel and clay soils. The clay in the soil is part of the reason that today, you find more Merlot in the vineyard. Previously the Cabernet Sauvignon occupied 65% of the vineyard makeup.
The vineyard is well placed in the western part of the St. Julien appellation. It is situated inland, not too far from Chateau Lagrange, Chateau Talbot, and Chateau Gruaud Larose. The vineyard is planted to a vine density of 8,500 vines per hectare.

This wind pours a dark plum purple. We decanted it for about half an hour first. It has flavors of dried berries, cinnamon, and other spices. It’s tannins were somewhat mild. But overall very good and went great with the grass-fed New York steaks repaired it with. #lalande #pomerol #bordeauxrouge #rightbankbordeaux — 2 months ago
