  • Goedhuis, June 2011

    This was one of our great buys from the 2005 vintage. Plush yet classic, this St. Estèphe delivers a delicious core of red and black fruits supported by sweet leather and spice. Owned by the Bouygues family who also have Ch Montrose.

  • Robert Parker, June 2015, Score: 88

    An attractive wine from the owners of Montrose and, at this time, the brilliant Jean-Bernard Delmas, who made all the great Haut-Brions between 1959 and 2003. This wine displays sweet black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, some earth and spice, medium body, and moderate but sweet tannin. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

  • Robert Parker, April 2008, Score: 89

    Now under the same ownership as Montrose, this blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Merlot and Petit Verdot possesses a dark ruby hue as well as a distinctive bouquet of earth, herbs, black currants, cedar, and oak. Medium-bodied, with much sweeter tannin than it exhibited from barrel, this sleeper of the vintage will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring, and should drink well over the following 10-15. 89/100 Drink 2011-2026

  • Robert Parker, April 2007, Score: 87-88

    Now under the same ownership as Montrose, 2005 is the first vintage where crop-thinning and a selection took place for the top wine. The final blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, and 9% Petit Verdot has resulted in a dark ruby-colored effort displaying earthy, herbal, black currant notes, medium body, and more complexity and depth than I have seen from this property in many years. This wine should firm up and offer good drinking between 2010-2015.

Producer

Château Tronquoy-Lalande

Tronquoy Lalande is located in St. Estèphe and boasts 42 acres of vineyards as well as a fine twin-towered château. Acquired by Château Montrose several years back, their vineyards are worked and its wine is produced in the same fashion as its more illustrious neighbour. This new attention to detail has helped improve its quality making it a more sought after château in its own right.

Region

St Estèphe

St Estèphe is the most northern of Médoc communal crus. Its unique terroir is made up of layers of gravel which are supported by a dense clay base. This subsoil retains water in dry seasons and works particularly well with Merlot, a largely planted variety which is used to flesh out Cabernet Sauvignon. This clay base also creates powerful, textured tannins which enable St Estèphe to stand out from the pack. Like St Julien, it is one of the four most important communal appellations of the Médoc which does not contain any first growths, despite its southern border being a stone'sthrow from Château Lafite. Nonetheless, it is home to some excellent châteaux making fine wines such as Cos d'Estournel, Montrose, Calon Ségur and Lafon Rochet.
