    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    La Chenade, Lalande de Pomerol, 2009

    As we have stated in our vintage overview, this is not the most homogenous vintage, particularly for many of the less expensive wines. However, if you look closely, (and we did at literally hundreds), you can discover some great value wines for short to medium term drinking. La Chenade is always one of our favourite value buys and the 2009 is definitely a wine to stock up with. Seductive, soft, plumy fruit, very lush and suave with great intensity, precision and a beautiful silky texture. Very smart.

    Supple and generous, with rapsberry and blackberry puree, floral aromatics, clear precision, edges of austerity from the big tannins of the vintage. Harvest September 9 to 16. 30% new oak 3.72ph. A yield of 38hl/ha. Noemie Durantou winemaker alongside Olivier Gautrat.

    A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2020 La Chenade is deep garnet-purple in color. It needs a little swirling to release notes of baked raspberries, kirsch, and stewed red and black plums, leading to suggestions of lavender, tar, and sandalwood. The medium-bodied palate is elegantly styled with lovely purity and a pleasant chewiness to the texture, finishing long on a minerally note.

    The 2020 La Chenade was very promising when I originally tasted it from barrel. In bottle since May, it has developed a lovely nose with melted red berry fruit, wild mint and light fennel scents. Nicely delineated and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins. Extremely pure, very harmonious, this Lalande-de-Pomerol discretely crescendos towards its very satisfying, quite structured finish. Superb.
