Located in the heart of the Saint-Estèphe appellation, Château Tronquoy-Lalande has a vineyard spanning 74 acres with its origins dating back to the 18th century. In 2006, soon after acquiring its illustrious neighbour, Chateau Montrose, Martin and Olivier Bouygues purchased the estate and embarked on a large scale modernisation program which has seen a dramatic improvement in the quality of the wines.
An exceptional vintage for Bordeaux, the 2016 Chateau Tronquoy-Lalande is comprised of 58% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc with maturation taking place in French oak for 12 months.
Dense inky black core with a deep dark red black hue. Sailing out of the glass are red to blackcurrant and subtle red liquorice aromatics trailed by notions of cigar box, earthy graphite like notes, black olive and spice. Medium bodied, rich red and black currant fruits have an earthy underbelly with subtle notions of cigar box, leather, graphite and spicy black olive also evident. Firmly structured tannins have a muscular feel imparting some light grip on to the fresh finish. Long, slightly chewy yet elegant aftertaste.
Cellar 6-8 years.
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. Drink 2019-2033.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown – Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
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. Drink 2022-2042.
Neal Martin – Vinous
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. Drink from 2023.
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. It will keep for 15-20 years. Drink 2019-2039.
