2016 Tronquoy-Lalande, St-Estèphe (1.5L)

SKU #1465106 93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The wine shows much palate depth and richness, with Merlot coming to the fore. Impressive body but with freshness too, if not among the top wines in terms of racy elegance. I also tasted a 2005, which was impressive but not quite as precise as the 2016 – proof of just how much the estate has improved over the last 10 years. (JA) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The aromas of violets and flowers are impressive in this with dark fruit underneath. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh and bright finish. Shows beautiful depth and resilience. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Tronquoy-Lalande has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of crushed blackberries and black cherries with herbs, cigar box and damp soil. Medium to full-bodied, it offers good concentration and depth with firm, fine-grained tannins, finishing long and perfumed. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Château Tronquoy-Lalande checks in as a blend of 58% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, all aged 12 months in 30% new barrels. It offers a ripe, black-fruited, classic Saint-Estèphe profile of blackcurrants, plums, graphite, and tobacco leaf. This gives way to a ripe, rounded, impressively concentrated wine that has sweet tannins and a great finish. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Tronquoy-Lalande has a concentrated bouquet featuring a more open fruit profile compared to the 2016 La Dame de Montrose, offering blackberry, raspberry and light cassis notes and revealing touches of cedar and incense with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity, and quite linear, leading into a nicely detailed, quite tensile finish. Another Saint-Estèphe that needs time, but this is a classy number. (NM) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Dark tannins and rich, succulent fruit mark this wine made by the same team as Château Montrose. Black fruits and solid, concentrated tannins contrast with the acidity that still shows through strongly. (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This has a fairly intense beam of kirsch, blackberry paste and plum reduction flavors leading the way, supported by a wide swath of loam and tobacco leaf notes. There's a bright chalky hint at the end giving this life while keeping it on the austere side. Should age nicely. (JM, Web-2019) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

91 points Antonio Galloni for Vinous: "The 2016 Tronquoy-Lalande has turned out beautifully. Dark, supple and mysterious, the 2016 is quite brooding in this vintage. Black cherry, grilled herbs, plum, chocolate, leather and gravel all run through this virile, potent Saint-Estèphe. The Tronquoy has gained quite a bit of structure and vertical depth in aging, whereas during en primeur it was a more supple wine." (01/2019)

Considered one of the best vintages of Tronquoy-Lalande, the 2016 is definitely in its youth still. To drink it now I would advise to decant it. But it’s all there, alluring aromatics of blueberries, cassis and incense; rich, full body palate with plenty of spices. For the cellars, by the case!
