55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet. Nice deep colour, more merlot offers a ripe opulent entree, solid nose inky perfumed, horse hair, cool fruit, nice balance, nice shape, dusty spicy finish, really good Bordeaux character, and a relative bargain.

Rating : 90-92/100

This is very linear and refined with tight-grained tannins and blackberry and blackcurrant character. Shows such finesse and beauty. One of best from here in a long time.

Rating : 92-93/100

55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. 30% new oak. Rich and very lively on the nose. Real freshness and raciness. Beautiful wine! Really vibrant and rich. But with masses of energy. Just very slightly dry on the end. But such a charmer!

Rating : 17.5/20


Tasting Date : 19 April 2017

The 2016 Lalande-Borie is plump, juicy and forward. Sweet tobacco, grilled herbs, menthol, black cherry and earthy notes give the 2016 its distinct savory profile. This midweight, attractive Saint-Julien will drink well with minimal cellaring. The significant presence of Merlot gives the wine its fleshy, seductive personality. Tasted two times.

Rating : 90-92/100

The 2016 Lalande-Borie is a blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, delivering 13.66% alcohol and matured in 30% new oak and the remainder oneyear old. There is something almost clinical about the nose, very pure, no frills (at the moment), hints of crushed violet emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very harmonious and cohesive, citrus-like freshness from start to finish with a long and velvety blueberry and blackberry finish. This is very polished and it should give plenty of drinking pleasure for several years.

Rating : 90-92/100
