(0 customer reviews)
£35.50

The warm 2019 vintage in Bordeaux enhanced the fragrant aromas and ripe fruit flavours of Chateau Tournefeuille’s Lalande de Pomerol, a blend in 2019 of just Merlot and Cabernet Franc. A Pomerol look-alike, it is soft and silky in texture with juicy plum and cherry flavours with hints of chocolate and liquorice

Description

Just like Pomerol, Château Tournefeuille Lalande de Pomerol has gone back to the classic blend for the 2019 vintage, roughly two thirds Merlot and one third Cabernet Franc; the warm weather that year meant that Cabernet Sauvignon was not required to add structure and that riper black fruit aromas and flavours dominate. As in previous vintages, the wine feels silky smooth in the mouth; it tastes of mature blackberries, blackcurrants and ripe plums with raspberry and mineral notes. Hints of cocoa and coconut will develop further as the wine ages in bottle. This is a prime example of Lalande de Pomerol and it is just like Pomerol.

 

Situated on the Pomerol / Lalande de Pomerol border with Château Pétrus just across the river Barbanne, Château Tournefeuille benefits from a hill-top position and the best clay and gravel soils of the region. This means its Lalande de Pomerol is powerful and its tannins soft. Run by the Petit family the Château practises sustainable agriculture including traditional ploughing and manual harvesting. The vines range from 10 to over 60 yeards old.

How to enjoy this wine

Recommended with steak, beef casseroles, lamb, chicken, turkey and smooth enough to have with pork dishes also. Also good with cheese, tomato-based dishes, mushrooms, roast vegetables etc. At Christmas, Left bank Bordeaux can be too tannic for low fat meat but this right bank Bordeaux with softer tannins is the perfect accompaniment to turkey or roast beef and, given that it is still very fruity, would work well with goose or duck.

 

Serve at: 15 – 17°C

Producer's Notes

“Beautiful grapes have been harvested! Let’s come back to the classic blend of Tournefeuille. Nose of blackberries and cocoa. Sweet, round, full-bodied and of good length. Very polished finish all in the image of a beautiful Pomerol! Satisfaction of the winemaker.”
