2010 Tronquoy-Lalande, St-Estèphe

SKU #1067267 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A rich, chocolaty wine, with the structure right up front. Under the same ownership as Château Montrose, this is a wine that reveals all its attractions early with sweet blackberry fruit and powerful tannins. There is some freshness as well, giving fruitiness and acidity at the end. Inner quote mark (3/2013)

90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark One of the finest wines I have ever tasted from Tronquoy Lalande, this estate has been resurrected by the Bouygues family (also the owners of Chateau Montrose) capably assisted by Jean-Bernard Delmas, the wine architect at Haut-Brion between 1961 and 2003. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and a whopping 10% Petit Verdot, the 2010 boasts a dense purple color as well as a big, sweet bouquet of violets, black currants, earth and subtle oak. Admirable concentration, sweet, well-integrated tannin and a surprisingly sexy, opulent mouthfeel result in a gorgeous wine to drink over the next 12-15+ years. Inner quote mark (5/2011)

90-93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich and lush, particularly for the appellation, with gorgeous mouthfeel and alluring layers of warm plum sauce, dark fig, black currant and sweet tobacco. Good iron notes weave in quietly on the finish. Inner quote mark (3/2011)

K&L Notes

High-toned blueberry and blackberry fruit. Effusive and attractive. Super ripe. Shaun Green: Cassis-driven ripe palate with a structured finish. Alex Pross: Reminiscent of cherry cola on the nose, with pomegranate juice and good bitter cherry notes on the palate. Great body. A sleeper.
