Lalande de Pomerol, Chateau des Moines Prestige 2019 (6b case)

£120.00

Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc
Patrick Merle of Chateau des Moines has supplied us with the ever popular Lalande de Pomerol for over 10 years, and now, for the first time, we also have a small allocation of his flagship wine – the Ch. des Moines, Lalande Pomerol Prestige 2019.
The grapes for this wine come from a small 1.5 hectare plot of vines on clay-silt and gravel soils with traces of “crasse de fer” (iron oxide) –  that magic ingredient of Pomerol itself!  The blend is 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. The wine is vinified in the same way as Patrick’s standard Lalande Pomerol but this Prestige wine is aged in new oak barrels for 18 months before release.
This is an elegant dark garnet coloured wine with an explosive nose of black fruits within a delicate framework of toasty vanilla. The mouth is full, fleshy and fruity and supported by well integrated tannins with a long, fresh velvety finish.  A wine to take your time over. Just at the start of it’s drinking life now when it will benefit from decanting, but it will continue to improve over the next few years and go on for the rest of the decade.
Pure intrigue and enjoyment at a price for everyone’s pleasure!
