TASTING NOTES
Sweet cassis, liquorice, blackberry and oak in the nose. This medium/full bodied wine ends with a blackberry/boysenberry filled finish.There's an impressive richness to this wine along with elegance. With its vanilla character from the wood aging, it has smoothness and structure at the same time. At the end, the wine's freshness and juicy black fruits become more apparent.

PRODUCER 
Château Lalande Borie was founded in 1970 by Jean Eugene Borie on the Lalande terrior to which he added his family name and that he bought that same year from a classified growth in Saint Julien. Château Lalande Borie is located to the west of the Saint Julien appellation. The estate, set in the heart of terroirs of several renowned classified growth, consists of a large single plot of 25 hectares. Bruno Borie, famous for owning Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou along with other properties in Saint-Julien and Haut-Médoc, currently owns and manages the estate with his sister, Sabine Coiffe.

VINEYARD /Viticulture: The vineyard is managed traditionally (Medoc, double Guyot pruning), while including the latest viticultural techniques including: leaf-thinning my hand, green harvests in summer, partial cover crop, control yields and application of sustainable phytosanitary treatments.

Harvest: All the grapes are harvested manually. Sorting is carried out directly in the vines on mobile tables to avoid contact between unhealthy and healthy grapes during transport to the vat room.

WINERY /Vinification: Alcoholic fermentation takes place at relatively low temperatures (between 26-28°C) to optimize the fruity aromas of the wine. Pumping-over is gentle to avoid extracting too many tannins and obtain a pleasant fattiness. Malolatic fermentation of the free run wine and the press-wine (pneumatic pressing takes place in vats for optimal control.

Aging: The wine is placed in French oak barrels immediately after blending, with 20-30% new barrels used according to the vintage. Bottling is performed with special care in regard to both oenological controls and homogenization of the overall wine.
