Notes

This is the third vintage made by Noémie Durantou and Olivier Gautrat, and for us the most successful range to date. From the juicy griotte character of the Saintayme to the imperious L'Eglise Clinet, every wine displays its distinctive terroir signature with aplomb. Chenade has always been a firm J&B favourite and this 80% merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc expression is a sheer delight, the epitome of everything we like about this cuvee. Less charming than Saintayme initially, a more reserved style, which with aeration reveals notes of fresh raspberries, thyme and flowers. There's a gentle concentration, fresh acidity and structured tannins that combine to provide fluidity and persistence to the fruit. This is an excellent La Chenade.

Notes
The 2022 La Chenade was picked between 1 and 9 September and raised in 30% new oak. This has a perfumed and floral bouquet, with iris and peony infusing the black and red fruit and a light marine influence in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins, good depth, white pepper and clove filtering through the earthy fruit on the finish. So much character and personality in this Lalande-de-Pomerol.
