La Chenade, Lalande de Pomerol 2015

R350

47 in stock

Notes

80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc

Tasting notes:
'A fresh, ripe style, with a bright core of raspberry and plum coulis flavors lined with refined structure, backed by light rooibos tea and mineral threads on the finish. Stylish. Drink now through 2022.' – Wine Spectator, 91/100

'The 2015 La Chenade is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc picked between September 15-25 and on October 5 respectively, cropped at 45 hectoliters per hectare and matured in 30% new oak. This Lalande-de-Pomerol moves towards red fruit on the nose, crushed strawberry and raspberry pastilles, candied and somehow...joyful. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very fine in the mouth with a keen line of acidity. This is a very cohesive La Chenade, elegant and composed with a touch of salinity towards the finish. This is a graceful La Chenade that should drink early, but clearly has the substance to offer 12-15 years of drinking pleasure.' – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 91-93/100

'Purplish crimson. Quite sweet and meaty. Gentle - obviously not top drawer but fun and easy. A bit tart and dry on the end. Needs food. Wait awhile? Fine sandy tannins in abundance. Sweet oak.' – Jancis Robinson, 16/20
