Another sleeper of the vintage from Bruno Borie this 2010 is atypically powerful rich and concentrated with loads of sweet black currants mocha and a hint of caramel. Deep lush succulent and fruit-driven it is a wine to drink in its first 10-12 years of life.

Blackberries and dark licorice aromas with a full body with velvety tannins and a chocolate berry and currant character. Intense. So much here.

A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc delivering 13.95% alcohol and a pH 3.71. The nose is a little taciturn at first with blackberry a touch of cassis a hint of espresso and minerals. Good definition. The palate is full-bodied with fine but sturdy tannins very nice focus with a refined nicely poised very pure finish where the Cabernet lends a touch of graphite and cedar. This is a very fine Lalande-Borie that might be over-shadowed by Ducru.

From 40 year old vines the vineyards for Lalande Borie are situated between Lagrange and Talbot. Harvested between September 29th and October 14th. Alcohol 13.95%. Dark black fruit emerges on the palate with notes of cedar spice prominent earth and a touch of toast. Very jammy on the palate the tannins are rather subtle and there doesn't seem to be quite enough structure for this to be a long-lived wine. More likely this good value should be consumed young.
