The charm of a well-rounded and delicate Saint-Julien

A magnificent reference of Saint-Julien, Le Petit Ducru de Ducru-Beaucaillou, which replaces Chateau Lalande-Borie, is famous for its wines, which express the typical style of the emblematic appellation located on the left bank of Bordeaux.

Blending 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, the Chateau Lalande-Borie 2018 is aged for 12 months in Bordeaux barrels of 225 liters (of which 30% is new wood and 90% second-use wood).

At the tasting, the Chateau Lalande-Borie 2018 presents a beautiful dark garnet red color. Intense and expressive, the aromatic bouquet opens with acidulously sweet red fruits, spices and violets. The vintage has a beautiful palate of great purity, ample and structured, filling the mouth with its round shape and juicy fruit. At once delicate and precise, the palate stretches into a long, harmonious and balanced finish. An out-of-the-ordinary and delicious vintage of Chateau Lalande-Borie, ready to enjoy now or kept to evolve with age.

Parker : 88-90 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2018 Lalande-Borie is composed of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, with a pH of 3.77 and 14.5% alcohol. It is to be aged 12 months in barriques, 30% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up gregarious notions of baked black cherries, warm blackberries and cassis with hints of pencil lead, camphor and underbrush plus a waft of Sichuan pepper. Full-bodied with bags of black fruit, it has a plush frame and just enough freshness, finishing long and earthy.
