A rich, chocolaty wine, with the structure right up front. Under the same ownership as Château Montrose, this is a wine that reveals all its attractions early with sweet blackberry fruit and powerful tannins. There is some freshness as well, giving fruitiness and acidity at the end.

A major sleeper of the vintage from the proprietors of Montrose, this wine is now overseen by the man who replaced Jean-Bernard Delmas, Herve Berland, who worked for many years at Mouton-Rothschild. With stunning richness, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot exhibits lots of blueberry, boysenberry and mulberry notes, a full-bodied, voluptuously textured mouthfeel and terrific purity and length. The wine is very drinkable now and should continue to drink exceptionally well for at least another 12-15+ years. - Robert Parker

Lots of blueberry and chocolate character. Coffee too indicating a good amount of new wood. Full and juicy. Needs a two or three years to soften.

The Tronquoy-Lalande has a dense bouquet with blackberry, boysenberry and cedar that opens nicely with time. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannins, well judged acidity and an appealing harmonious finish with fine delineation and class. Classic in style, this is a well-made Saint Estephe.
