2003 Chateau Lalande Cru Bourgeois Listrac-Medoc


This Left Bank Bordeaux consists of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot has a firm bouquet of heavy pomegranate, musk, perfume, gravel and toasted oak.  With a very pleasant mouthfeel, this wine unfortunately falls extremely thin in the mid palate, finishing with faint flavors of blueberry, lilac and a moderately rugged tannin.

Afterthought:  I have to say after some serious decanting, this wine takes you on quite the journey, lending aromas ranging from freshly cut green grass, a fragrance of shellfish and ocean one experiences while walking upon a beach on a overcast day; ( MADNESS, I know!) and a smidgen of mango and barnyard to boot.   Cheers to all and Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.

  1. I’ve always fancied to have a wine connoisseur in my company because I just don’t know this from that. I tell bottle shop attendants I like sweet, but it always ends up dry. It would be great to actually know what you’re buying.
