Chateau Lalande-Borie St Julien 2015

Château Lalande-Borie was founded by renowned Ducru Beaucaillou owner Bruno Borie and his sister, Sabine Coiffe. The duo’s 25 hectares are half dedicated to Cabernet Sauvignon, with 40% Merlot and 10% Cab Franc rounding out holdings. This dry and structured wine ferments in steel and ages for 12 months in French oak (25% new), creating a textured wine full of fleshy dark fruit and chocolate notes marked by firm tannins.

Merlot

Deliciously zaftig Bordeaux grape that shed its second-banana-to-Cabernet Sauvignon status to become a star in its own right. Early-ripening softly textured yet often very serious (see: POMEROL).

Bordeaux, France

France's Gironde River estuary and its most prolific wine zone. Aristocratic reds from 'the Cabernets' and Merlot are complemented by a smaller number of whites both dry and sweet (Sauternes).
