The 2011 Tronquoy-Lalande is a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon 42% Merlot and 11% Petit Verdot. In 2011 I find there is a large difference between the Grand Vin and Deuxieme Vin perhaps terroir playing a great influence... The 2011 Tronquoy-Lalande is a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon 42% Merlot and 11% Petit Verdot. In 2011 I find there is a large difference between the Grand Vin and Deuxieme Vin perhaps terroir playing a great influence than in 2010. The Grand Vin displays fine delineation on the conservative nose with notes of blackberry leaf earth granite and a touch of cassis: more purity than power. The palate is medium-bodied with firm dusky tannins that are a little suppler tasting two weeks later on 5th April. Crisp acidity cuts through its masculine structure foursquare but precise tapering away towards the finish but demonstrating admirable precision and focus. Tasted April 2012.

Pure and elegant with pretty floral damson plum and currant fruit laced with finely beaded acidity. Nicely done.-J.M.

This 42-acre St. Estephe property planted over gravel topsoil and clay is run by the highly capable Montrose team. Shy nose with raspberry and Chambord notes dominating the palate. A saline note runs through the fresh acidity adding lift and lightness to the wine. The soft fleshy merlot is a great expression of the grape in the Left Bank clay soils. Will be approachable young and mouthwatering over the next 3-5 years.
