Due to its proximity to its prestigious neighbouring AOC Lalande-de-Pomerol gained well-deserved recognition. Its terraces make it a terroir worthy of its ambitions.
The Lalande-de-Pommerol wines have a unique very dark ruby-garnet colour, due to their Merlot base. Their very distinct and expressive nose, with notes of small red berries (red current, strawberry, cherry, raspberry), develops notes of plums, leather, game and even coco when aged in oak barrels.
With a frank and solid attack in the mouth, the Lalande-de-Pomerols have tight tannins, that are always velvety and never hard, another characteristic of Merlot. In blind tastings some wines are even reminiscent of those from neighbouring Saint-Emilion or Pomerol.
