Château Prieuré Lalande Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Prieuré Lalande Rouge

Château Prieuré Lalande is one of the most reliable wines in the Lussac-Saint-Émilion appellation. Ideally situated on a clay-limestone rise in Lussac, this estate benefits from the expertise of a team focused on producing wines of the same complexity and quality as the great châteaux of nearby Saint-Émilion.


2014 red Château Prieuré Lalande label

Wine style

Soft and Sensual

Grape blend

Merlot 70% / Cabernet Franc 20% / Cabernet Sauvignon 10%

Weather

Winter and spring were very mild, but the summer of 2014 did not live up to our expectations: it rained heavily in July, and August was much cooler than usual. However, starting in September, a miraculous Indian summer with high temperatures, was very favourable to ripening.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Lovely, deep-red colour.

Nose

On aeration, the bouquet is very open and fresh. The intense red-berry fruit is enhanced by subtle, lightly-toasted oak overtones.

Mouth

This wine is beautifully well-balanced on the palate , with smooth tannins and a very elegant aftertaste. Once again, the red-berry fruit is very present, with good acidity, giving the wine a lovely freshness that follows through on the aftertaste. This wine partners deliciously with duck, veal with wild mushrooms, and salads.

Consumption period

2017 - 2024
