Lalande de Pomerol

La Chenade, Lalande de Pomerol 2016

R350

50 in stock

Notes

80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc

La Chenade is south-west of the Les Cruzelles vineyard where there is more gravel and less clay. It contains a touch more Cabernet Franc and a little less new oak. Les Cruzelles is only slightly richer but both are approachable now and will age well for a decade. Both are made with the same care as the L’Eglise Clinet and, putting it simply, Bordeaux doesn’t get better at this price.

Tasting notes:
'The 2016 La Chenade, the Lalande de Pomerol from Denis Durantou, was bottled at the end of May 2018. It has a beautiful, well-defined bouquet that offers charming scents of wild strawberry, red currant and crushed stone. The palate is medium-bodied with an almost Burgundian tannin profile. This La Chenade is silky in texture and perfectly balanced, revealing palpable mineralité at its core. A stupendous wine from Durantou that oozes class and will give at least a decade’s worth of drinking pleasure.' – Neal Martin, Vinous.com, 92/100

'Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2016 La Chenade opens with tar and chargrill scents over a core of warm blackberries and black cherries with a waft of raspberry leaves. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with tarry black fruits, structured with chewy tannins and finishing on a dried herbs note.' – Lisa Perotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, 88/100
