About the Vineyard and the wine
Château Tronquoy-Lalande is a 30-hectare estate in St Estèphe on Bordeaux’s Left Bank. The property is owned by the Bouygues family, proprietors of nearby Ch. Montrose. In her book Inside Bordeaux, Jane Anson calls Tronquoy-Lalande “one of the most reliable buys of the appellation.” The Bouygues family bought Tronquoy Lalande in 2006. Their portfolio also includes near neighbour Montrose, Clos Rougeard in Saumur Champigny and a majority stake in Domaine Henri Rebourseau in Gevrey-Chambertin. Hervé Berland, formerly Managing Director at Ch. Mouton Rothschild, oversees all the estates. Tronquoy-Lalande’s Operations Manager, Yves Delsol, has been here for decades.
The result is lush and powerful. Cassis, plum and cherry aromas adorn the nose. The palate brings grippy but ripe tannins, gentle acidity and a pencil lead finish. This is balanced and extremely drinkable.
What to pair with Château Tronquoy-Lalande, Berry's Own Selection?
This unique wine can go very well with grilled red meat, fricassee of mushrooms, game, leg of lamb, etc. You can also enjoy it with a cold cuts platter for the aperitifs (cold cuts). With cheeses we would recommend to go for hard or semi hard cheese with a bit of nutty flavors such as a Comté.
