Chateau Tronquoy-Lalande

ch-tronquoy-lalande.jpgChateau Tronquoy-Lalande is currently one of St.-Estephe's best-kept secrets, and certainly one of it's best-value wines.  Purchased in 2006 by brothers Martin and Olivier Bouygues a few months after they purchased neighbouring behemoth Chateau Montrose, Tronquoy-Lalande's fortunes and prestige have leapt immeasurably  since then.  The impressive, if modestly-sized Chateau itself is surrounded by 18 hectares of superbly-sited vineyards, on prime gravelly soils, planted to roughly equal portions of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with a few percent of Petit Verdot in a single plot.

Winemaking is lead by the legendary Jean-Bernard Delmas, the former Chateau Haut-Brion winemaker of more than 40 years famously coaxed out of retirement to oversee winemaking at Chateau Montrose by the Bouygues brothers.  Delmas has retired following the 2011 vintage, to be replaced by ex-Mouton Rothschild man Herve Berland.
