WINE 21



FRESS & JUICY


A fresh and juicy wine with aromas of flower, cinnamon, earth and bright berries. Medium-bodied with fine density in the fruit, darker berry tones and a long persistent taste. The fields in the western part of the municipality, near Ch. Talbot and Ch. Lagrange, was affected by the frost in the spring, but only slightly lost. 2017 consists of 66% Merlot and 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, which after temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation gets malic-lactic acid fermentation / malolactic fermentation in a tank and is aged for 12 months in oak; ca. 1/3 new barriers.


FRISK & SAFTIG


En frisk og saftig vin med duft af blomst, kanel, jord og lyse bær. Middelfyldig med fin tæthed i frugten, mørkere bærtoner og en lang vedholdende smag. Markerne i kommunens vestlige del, nær Ch. Talbot og Ch. Lagrange, blev berørt af frosten i foråret, men kun lidt gik tabt. 2017 består af 66% Merlot og 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, som efter temperaturkontrolleret alkoholgæring får æble-mælkesyregæring/malolaktisk gæring i tank og er lagret 12 mdr. i eg; ca. 1/3 nye barriques.

ABOUT THE WINERY


LALANDE BORIE


Château Lalande Borie originated as late as 1970 when Jean Eugène Borie of Ch. DuCru-Beaucaillou bought 18 ha. fields of Ch. Lagrange and later 12 ha. of other neighbors. Some of these were with clay soil and some not planted at all, so the proportion of Merlot in the fields today is somewhat higher than in the beginning: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The plant density is 8500 sticks / ha .; as high as at the CruClassé castles. Bruno Borie manages the property today.


Château Lalande Borie opstod så sent som 1970, da Jean Eugène Borie fra Ch. DuCru-Beaucaillou købte 18 ha. marker af Ch. Lagrange og senere 12 ha. af andre naboer. En del af disse var med leret jord og noget slet ikke plantet, så andelen af Merlot i markerne er i dag noget højere end i starten: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot og 10% Cabernet Franc. Plantetætheden er 8500 stokke/ ha.; lige så højt som på CruClassé slottene. Bruno Borie styrer ejendommen i dag.
