Tasting Note:

Denis always has a catchphrase for each vintage. He describes the 2013s as 'unspittable' wines. It's a bon mot. 'Unspittable', because there is so little wine it would be a crime to, and 'unspittable' as the wines are gourmand and cry out to be consumed! This is another Lalande de Pomerol with a slightly higher percentage of Merlot (than La Chenade). 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The total production will be just 1000 cases of this velvety, alluring, mouth coating 2013. It is packed with sweet blackberries; very svelte and stylish. Denis has produced yet another wine with admirable purity, supple fruit and lovely slatey tannins. Beautiful.
