It is hard to find a better value in the Left Bank than Lalande-Borie. Forward, open, ripe and already expressing its fruity side, the flowery, sweet, earthy red fruits and soft, round textures with just a hint of licorice and smoke really hits the spot. The wine blends 60% Merlot with 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. 89-91 Pts

2016 Château Lalande-Borie  (St. Julien) 91

Smoky plum and chocolate aromatics make it fun to go nose to nose with this wine. Juicy, round, polished fruits and sweetness, silky tannins and an open personality make this a delicious wine to drink on release or age for a bit. Soft textures and a blast of chocolate with loads of plum and cherry in the endnote make this a fine Bordeaux value wine. 91 Points
