    2012 Saint-Julien from Bordeaux.

    Located on the Western plateau of the Saint-Julien appellation, the Chateau Lalande-Borie vineyard stretches on about 25 hectares. The 2012 Lalande Borie is 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc
    The wine displays a beautiful ruby-tinted deep dark red colour. On the nose, fragrances of red berry dominate with a hint of blackcurrant. The 2012 Chateau Lalande Borie offers a charming palate thanks to Merlot and Cabernet Franc. This wine possesses volume enhanced by lovely round tannins.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Lalande-Borie has a tightly wound bouquet, well-defined but yanking on the leash--blackberry and pine cone aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite supple in the mouth with well-judged acidity, appreciable density and a very classically-driven finish that has just the right amount of dryness to urge another sip. This is a well-crafted Saint Julien that should offer a decade's worth of pleasure. Tasted January 2016.
