Merlot, Cabernet Franc
75cl * 13.5% ABV * Lalande de Pomerol, Bordeaux
On the Right Bank, just north of Pomerol, the Lalande offers some affordable Merlot-dominated wines in the middle Pomerol style, often at a fraction of the cost of the big names and offer something of a bargain. This, the second wine of Château Siaurac, offers black cherry and a good hit of vanilla alongside soft tannins and a lively finish. Pair with roasted poultry or rich mushroom dishes.
