AVAILABILITY: Out of stock

Château Lalande is made up from 55% Cabernet, 40% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc and is perfectly situated between Châteaux Talbot and Lagrange (classified in 1855 as fourth and third growths respectively).  This enviable position elevates what is in fact a simple petite château to something quite special.  Grapes are carefully harvested before being destemmed and crushed and transfered to temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Fermentation lasts around 10-15 days, with 7 days maceration.  The wine spends 12 months in oak, around 30% of which is new (depending upon the nature of the vintage).

A wine that possesses all the richness and power that you should expect from a classed Saint-Julien estate, but at half the price.  Textbook pencil lead, tea chest nose with a well structured palate of intense cassis fruit and fine grained tannins.

An absolute must with roast beef.
