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 65% / Cabernet Franc 25% / Cabernet Sauvignon 10%.

Weather

2015 was the third warmest year since 1900... Drought conditions, above-average monthly temperatures and sunshine (in the first half of the year), cool nights and hot weather in August accompanying véraison (colour change) were all ideal for the vines!

Tasting Comment

Appearance

2015 Prieuré Lalande is a brilliant, sumptuous crimson colour, interspersed with orange highlights.

Nose

The bouquet is elegant and aromatic with appealing hints of red fruit, especially cherry.

Mouth

Delicious and fresh on the palate with red fruit flavours (cherry), reminiscent of the bouquet. The tannin is elegant with perfectly integrated oak, paving the way for an equally enjoyable aftertaste. 2015 Prieuré Lalande goes perfectly with pork, grilled veal or a beef fillet with pepper sauce.

Consumption period

2019 - 2025
