Château Tronquoy Lalande, 2016, Cru Bourgeois, Saint Estephe (6x75cl)
Saint Estephe on a roll with the same wine making team as Château Montrose! Sometimes it really is worth seeking out the best Bordeaux, Cru Bourgeois!
We love the story and the wine but seem not to be alone - this critic gave the wine a very respectable 94/100 - William Kelley, Wine Advocate (October 2022)
"The 2016 Tronquoy-Lalande is a brilliant wine. Wafting from the glass with scents of cassis, dark berries, cigar wrapper and loamy soil, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and seamless, with a deep and multidimensional core, lively acids and beautifully ripe tannins. Suave and elegant, this young, impeccably balanced classic will delight Médoc purists, but it is far from austere today and will offer a remarkably broad drinking window."
