Winemakers Note

"Located in the heart of Saint-Estèphe, Château Tronquoy-Lalande is widely recognized as having one of the oldest and most beautiful terroirs of the appellation. Its vineyard seamlessly covers 30 hectares around the château. In 2006, the Bouygues family discovered this historic terroir and launched a major programme to renovate both the vineyard and the technical buildings. Under the direction of Yves Delsol, it is with passion that our teams strive to cultivate this terroir, with its unique character." THE VINTAGE 2018 was marked by atypical climatic conditions. The quality of the terroir allowed the vineyard to resist the pressure from parasites, which was particularly strong this year. The clay gravels of our soils mitigated the effects of the summer drought, while the high temperatures at the end of the season favoured good concentration in the grapes, which revealed all their potential in the cellar. TASTING NOTE Deep ruby colour, dark and intense. The nose reveals beautiful black fruit notes (blackcurrant, blackberry) accompanied by spicy notes and discreet oak. Full on the palate, with good aromatic complexity. The tannins are powerful but silky. The long finish, slightly saline, is well balanced. 2018 is a very fine vintage which reveals all the richness of the terroir of Château Tronquoy-Lalande.
