Château Tronquoy Lalande, St Estèphe, 2022

2022

Tasting Notes


ABV:
12.5 %

Notes

A return to the EP market and a cobalt rebranding to simply “Tronquoy” (dropping the Lalande). As we've been saying for several years, this St Estephe property owned by the Bouygues family and run by the team at Montrose is making superb wines, and for the time being, they still offer excellent value for money. The 2022 is a blue-blooded offering with a distinctly Cabernet character. Ripe and aromatic, this is packed with dark, rich and enveloping fruit, framed by ripe, well-judged tannins. A very attractive wine, which will give lots of mid-term drinking pleasure. 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot.

Notes
The 2022 Tronquoy-Lalande comes in a new bottle design with a wax capsule. On the nose, it blossoms without any encouragement with copious black cherries, cassis and blueberry scents. The oak is beautifully enmeshed. It conveys a sense of warmth, but retains sufficient delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannins that frame that multi-layered black fruit. One of the spiciest Tronquoy-Lalandes for some time, with a peacock's tail on the finish. This is an outstanding Saint-Estèphe determined not to lie in the shadow of its sibling Montrose.
