2017 Berry Bros. & Rudd St Estèphe by Tronquoy-Lalande, Bordeaux

Description

Our St Estèphe comes from Ch. Tronquoy-Lalande. This environmentally conscious property is owned by the Bouygues family, proprietors of nearby Ch. Montrose. This is traditional St Estèphe: both structured and powerful, it is deliciously full-bodied and moreish. There is an unusually high proportion of Merlot (85%) in the blend this year, giving a pleasingly plump feel to the fruit. A true all-rounder, this will partner your grandest roast, a mature cheddar or a simple cold collation.

Max Lalondrelle, Wine Buying Director, Berry Bros. & Rudd

About this WINE

Ch. Tronquoy-Lalande

Ch. Tronquoy-Lalande

Château Tronquoy-Lalande is a 30-hectare estate in St Estèphe on Bordeaux’s Left Bank. The property is owned by the Bouygues family, proprietors of nearby Ch. Montrose. In her book Inside Bordeaux, Jane Anson calls Tronquoy-Lalande “one of the most reliable buys of the appellation.”

The Bouygues family bought Tronquoy-Lalande in 2006. Their portfolio also includes near-neighbour Montrose, Clos Rougeard in Saumur-Champigny and a majority stake in Domaine Henri Rebourseau in Gevrey-Chambertin. Hervé Berland, formerly Managing Director at Ch. Mouton Rothschild, oversees all the estates. Tronquoy-Lalande’s Operations Manager, Yves Delsol, has been here for decades.

The 30-hectare vineyard surrounds the château. Soils here are deep gravel and clay. Plantings are a majority of Merlot (52%), with 39% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance split between Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

A new winery was completed here in 2010.
