Part of the Ducru-Beaucaillou empire, Ch Lalande-Borie is a 38 hectare property in the western part of Saint-Julien, with vineyards touching Ch Lagrange, Ch Gruaud-Larose and Ch Talbot. The Bories’ late father bought and planted this land in the 1970s, the vines being now over 40 years old. This 2011 is a delight, with elegant perfumed, floral aromas. The textures are lovely, silky and very fine, the fruit being ripe, complex and spicy. A very well-balanced wine this bottle is ready for immediate drinking.
