2010 Siaurac, Lalande de Pomerol

SKU #1295315 91 points James Suckling

 Dark polished fruit with coffee and sweet licorice. Nice sweetness on the palate with full body and an enjoyable licorice note that carries on all the way through the long finish. Soft tannins and good volume. Drinks well already now.  (3/2013)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Deliciously ripe dark plum and boysenberry fruit is carried by fine-grained, sandy tannins and backed by licorice snap and black tea. Direct, pure and tasty. (JM, Web-2013)

One of the highlights of our visit last year was Château Siaurac, one of the largest and oldest properties in Lalande de Pomerol. Sadly, we heard this year that they had been hit hard by the frost in 2017. I am sure there will be many great vintages in their future, and we continue to support them by providing our customers with some of the greatest of their past vintages. The 2010 Siaurac, Lalande de Pomerol $24.99 shares much in common with its more expensive neighbors to the south in Pomerol, including a lush, rich texture and a high proportion of Merlot. The ripe, plummy fruit reflects the strength of this 2010 vintage. Not to be missed.

A new property for us here at K&L and what a find. This is quite elegant with ripe black cherry, espresso roast, cassis and dark plum in a satin textured middle that ends with a finish of mineral and talc. Here we have a marriage of fruit, structure and finesse. The rich, chocolaty 2016 with its huge fruit held in place by fine, chalky tannins may end up being even better.

A great offering from Lalande-de-Pomerol, showing a robust core of ripe fruit but never heavy-handed. Beautiful aromatics of plums, berries, and coffee beans. They follow on the elegant palatealong with very polished tannins now. Very much a wine to enjoy now as it is already delicious and a great bargain for its quality.

Our first vintage from this property-and what a great wine for the price. 2010 Bordeaux tend to be a bit on the hard side, but this is super polished. Great blackberry aromas and flavor. A touch of toasty oak. Sweet and sexy on the palate. We expect great things from this property in the future. Do not miss this.
Drink from 2017 to 2027

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
