Château Lalande Villeneuve Médoc 2014
91 Points - IWR. A star in the making from consultant winemaker supremo Eric Boissenot (Latour, Lafite, Mouton, Margaux). Chateau Lalande Villeneuve is perched at the tip of the Medoc where sea breezes keep the grapes healthy and the mineral soils make the wines powerful. Here the Saint Estephe blend of soils (Clay, Gravel and Chalk) make the Merlot powerful and the Cabernet Elegant. The Petit Verdot brings freshness to the blend.

About the Producer
A brand new winery has been built on the property by owner Adrien Uijttewaal who
feeds his vines with natural manure thanks to his neighbouring cattle farm.

The team at Château Lalande Villeneuve have shown clear devotion to clean and sustainable agriculture with a level 2 of 3 in High Environmental Value (a certification of « Lutte Raisonné » which also goes in to care for employees) and Terra Vitis certification.

91 Points - International Wine Report.
"The 2014 Château Lalande Villeneuve is showing excellent. Instantly opening to inviting aromas of dried cherries and dark plums are woven together with tobacco, spices and charcoal nuances which all come together in the glass. On the palate this is medium-bodied with a gorgeous silky texture and lovely overall balance the through the pretty finish. This is outstanding now, but should continue to cellar nicely for a few more years."
