Merlot/Cabernet Franc * 75cl * 14.5% ABV * Lalande de Pomerol, France
Situated next to the Pomerol plateau, this right-bank property is the largest estate in the Lalande and has been in the Guichard family for over one-hundred and eighty years. Dark and inky in appearance, with a richly perfumed and enticing nose of ripe blackcurrant cassis, cherry, menthol and plum. Unctuous in texture with big, ripe tannins, its flavours following through from nose to palate. Unashamedly modern Bordeaux that is drinking very nicely now, but with a good few years ahead of it.
