Product Description

Similar to what has taken place in Bordeaux for centuries, Chateau Lalande Borie took its name from its owner, Jean Eugene Borie. If the Borie name sounds familiar to you, it should. Bruno Borie, is the owner of several estates in Saint Julien, and in the Haut-Medoc appellation, but he is most famous for owning Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou. Bruno Borie manages the estate along with his sister, Sabine Coiffe. Chateau Lalande is a relatively new estate in the Medoc. The vineyard was initially created when the Borie family purchased 18 hectares of vines from Chateau Lagrange in 1970 and 12 hectares from various other growers, some of which needed planting. The 25 hectare, Left Bank vineyard is planted to 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The vineyard has a terroir of gravel and clay soils. The clay in the soil is part of the reason that today, you find more Merlot in the vineyard. Previously the Cabernet Sauvignon occupied 65% of the vineyard makeup. The vineyard is well placed in the western part of the St. Julien appellation. It is situated not too far from Chateau Lagrange, Chateau Talbot and Chateau Gruaud Larose. The vineyard is planted to a vine density of 8,500 vines per hectare. To produce the wine of Chateau Lalande Borie, the wine is vinified in temperature controlled, stainless steel vats. Malolactic fermentation takes place in tank. The wine is then aged in an average of 25% new, French oak barrels for 12 months before bottling. On average, the production is close to 12,000 cases of wine per year at Chateau Lalande Borie.
