Today we kick-off with Bruno Borie’s utterly delicious Château Lalande-Borie, which is produced by the Ducru Beaucaillou team and comes highly recommend for the cellar @ £230.00 IB per case.
Created by Bruno's father, Jean-Eugène, in 1970, its different vineyard blocks are bordered by Lagrange, Talbot, and Gruaud. They are planted at a very high density of 9,000 vines/hectare. The average age of the vines here is about 38 years.
Jancis MW prefers this to Château Ducru’s second wine, La Croix de Beaucaillou, which will be released at least 40% higher in value.
