Did you know that one of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world is Chateau Petrus, and that it’s made from 100% Merlot grapes grown in the Pomerol region in Bordeaux?  The wines of Lalande-de-Pomerol are also made predominantly of Merlot, and the region borders Pomerol to the North.  With Bordeaux prices steadily rising, sometimes it pays to look just outside the more expensive regions to uncover values in areas that share similar soils.  The soils there are mostly sand and gravel and have excellent drainage, and 2015 delivered an extremely warm, dry growing season and produced rich, powerful wines.  The Wine Spectator rated the overall vintage on the Right Bank 97 Points, which is one of the best in the last decade.  This wine has solid reviews across the board and I second Jeb Dunnuck’s comment, and I too would be thrilled to have it on my table anytime…

Chateau de Viaud-Lalande’s 2015 was forged from 40 year old vines and perfectly marries 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.  The wine has stunning concentration, and offers micro-layers of pulverized dark berries, ripe currants, crushed granite and hints of black chocolate.  If you enjoy complex, delicious, full-bodied reds, this one’s an excellent value at under thirty per bottle.

2015 CHÂTEAU DE VIAUD-LALANDE LALANDE-DE-POMEROL BORDEAUX [STAINED LABELS]

“… the 2015 Château De Viaud-Lalande… is a full-bodied, opulent, expansive beauty loaded with notions of plums, ripe currants, smoke tobacco, and earth. With polished tannin, beautiful richness and a great finish, I’d be thrilled to have it on my table anytime over the coming 10-15 years.”
90 Points
A juicy Viaud with plenty of berry, dark chocolate and cedar character. Medium to full body and a backbone of firm tannins. Tension and precision.”
91-92 Points
 “This is one to savour, packed full of black cherry and dark chocolate alongside hints of truffle and clear peppery spice. It’s very well rounded with a lift on the finish and one that is made in a definite Pomerol style…This is modern in style, out to make an impression, and it succeeds.
