Rodrigues Lalande

Château La Fleur de Boüard

Lalande de Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Super structured, elegant, fruit-forward. Not a tremendous amount of complexity for a 20-yr-old wine, but highly enjoyable. Probably could use another few years. — 7 days ago

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1992

Cocoa, strawberry, currant, vanilla, tar, cedar, wet forest soil, a lot of things happen. It's showing a bit of age but certainly not as much as the label shows. The palate is showing a strong acid backbone and this is quite striking here. It must be because of the vintage though. Nice strawberry, currant fruit all along, good width with a thin matter which lays a layer of silk all over the mouth. In mid palate come some rather well integrated tannins, bringing in some energy by disrupting slightly that very silky mouthfeel with a dusty touch. The finish is very long with fruit, vanilla, cocoa and maybe even mocha. Perhaps not the best Pichon Lalande but a very good take on a tough vintage which is still relevant and delivering to this day.
29 years old and kicking! We served it along with a slow cooked lamb leg and beans (traditional Easter meal in my region) and this was a perfect match. Celebrating wifey's birthday in style!

Château Lalande-Borie

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Deep red, subdued nose with pepper, potato, and soil. Medium body, medium plus alcohol, not showing too much on the palate, but otherwise nicely balanced. Good, not very good.
