2016 Siaurac, Lalande de Pomerol

SKU #1406221 92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The 2016 is naturally a little more subdued but there's an aromatic complexity with earthy, dark fruit notes. The palate is juicy and fresh with good persistence, the tannic frame powerful but the tannins finely honed. This is clearly a wine for ageing and will reward a little patience. The 'best value' pick. (JL) Inner quote mark (7/2021)

92 points Jane Anson

Outer quote mark This is the second vintage produced as entirely biodynamic under Latour tutelage. These are good, bright and pliable tannins, and the fruit is extremely dark with good spice through the palate. I really like the cut herbs on the nose. This is a wine that has improved over recent years and is really one to watch. Inner quote mark (4/2017)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Bright flowers and attractive red berries on offer here with a really succulent, velvety palate that offers rich red-plum flavors. Long and juicy resolve. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Siaurac is silky, perfumed and exceptionally beautiful. Readers will find a restrained Lalande de Pomerol built on finesse and class. Sweet tobacco, menthol, licorice and pretty herbal notes add shades of complexity throughout. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fresh and charming, with cherry and strawberry fruit flavors gliding through atop sandalwood and light herb notes. (JM, Web-2019) Inner quote mark

Whole lot of wine, for not a lot of money! Spice box aromatics bound from the glass, with herbal edges that cut through the Big Dark Fruit at the heart of this wine. Sage, tarragon, a sprig of rosemary and a dash of Five Spice - savory, chewy tannins wrap up the whole bundle. Drink or save a few for a couple of extra years!

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.

I’m perennially impressed by this wine. Siaurac is located on an extension of the Pomerol plateau and has a relatively high proportion of Cabernet Franc at 20%. The result is a very complex, expressive wine with a beautiful perfume, bright flavors of red and blue fruit with mint and herbs, and great structure from a generous but balanced oak regimen. If you’ve tried any of the recent back vintages we have (like the 2010, in stock now) you know it ages superbly.
