Tasting Notes

  • RP1

    Robert Parker, February 2012,
    Score: 87

    While I was hoping for something slightly better in 2009, this is still a seductive blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, bottled after 12 months to retain its fruit. With a very sweet spot in the middle, although it is technically dry, it exhibits loads of black currants, roasted herbs and tobacco leaf as well as hints of underbrush and forest floor. This medium-bodied wine is forward enough to drink over the next decade. Drink: 2012 - 2022

    Robert Parker, April 2010,
    Score: 88-90

    The finest wine I have ever tasted from Lalande Borie, the 2009 (50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc) displays lots of purity along with a boatload of black currant, raspberry, and black cherry fruit, no evidence of wood, broad, rich, deep flavors, and a velvety texture. It should drink well for a decade or more. Drink: 2010 - 2020

    James Suckling

    Wonderful aromas of flowers such as roses. Full-bodied, with firm and precise tannins. Fresh fruit, with a citrus undertone. Medium finish.

    Decanter, April 2010,
    Score: 16+

    Purple red, deep fleshy, almost voluptuous fruit with good length and grip at the end. Drink 2013-18.

Region

St Julien

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
