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.


label of 2019 Château Prieuré Lalande red

Wine style

Soft and Sensual

Grape blend

Merlot 65% / Cabernet Franc 30% / Cabernet Sauvignon 5%

Weather

2019 was marked by a fairly mild winter, resulting in early bud break. Spring rainfall was scarce and drought conditions set in in early summer. Rainfall in August provided a welcome relief for winegrowers.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Colour is a nice cherry red with a medium intensity.

Nose

The nose is very intense and gives off delicious notes of ripe fruit with a hint of vanilla. The whole is very pleasant.

Mouth

The attack has a nice sweetness. Moderately powerful, balanced and delicate, this is a gourmet wine that will seduce many with its immediate drinkability. This light Tour de Ségur can be served with beef consommé, grilled loin of pork or stuffed tomatoes.

Consumption period

2022 - 2028
