Château Prieuré Lalande Red

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.

Wine style

Soft and Sensual

Grape blend

Merlot 60% / Cabernet Franc 30% / Cabernet sauvignon 10%

Weather

Winter was harsh (many days with frost) and spring rather chilly. There was a great deal of sunshine in 2010 and a long period of drought from 21 June to late September, which was favourable for ripening.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Chateau Prieuré Lalande has a very deep ruby-red colour. Its appearance is altogether attractive and is a fine start to enjoying the wine.

Nose

The complex bouquet reveals overtones of ripe fruit, as well as toasty aromas and caramel nuances.

Mouth

The wine is full-bodied and vivacious on the palate, combining volume and buoyancy. Furthermore, its character has already begun to come through. The fruitiness and perfectly-integrated oak makes this wine an ideal partner for veal chops with ceps or beef Wellington!
