The 2016 Chateau Lalande Borie is elegant, balanced wine offers both great structure and also black-currant fruits. Another winner from the genius of Bruno Borie, the 2016 Lalande Borie is a wine savvy readers should seek out. This 2016 Chateau Lalande Borie wine is a lovely lighter style of St-Julien in a year where much of the appellation is extremely intense and closed down right now, and will need at least a decade. This red wine is a great value 2016 St.-Julien. It shows some austerity but offers excellent drinking potential over the next four to ten years.
The 2016 Chateau Lalande Borie wine has a blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon raised in 30% new French oak.
