K&L Notes

Neal Martin for Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Chateau Montrose, the 2009 has a ripe bouquet with brambly dark fruits, a hint of dark chocolate, graphite and sous-bois coming from the 7% Petit Verdot. The palate has good cohesion and certainly a lot more substance than the Second Wine. Firm, quite grippy tannins, very nice cohesion and focus towards the finish when the Cabernet dominates the Merlot despite it being a lower percentage of the blend (42%.) This is a great wine from Montrose’s 'little sister'." (06/2012)

    We at K&L certainly respect the great second growth Château Montrose, the masculine, stoic pillar of a wine that never wavers. But the huge buzz coming from Montrose these days is all about the other wine they make there, located about 100 yards away: Château Tronquoy-Lalande. Very few wines in my 38 years here have had such a meteoric rise in popularity— and it’s all about great taste! The 2009 Tronquoy-Lalande is just loaded with delicious, deep, purple-blue fruit—I wish I could have this wine in stock forever! Hundreds of cases already sold and it’s our last shot at this beauty.

    This lush, warm and gentle wine will surprise anyone expecting classic St-Estephe firmness. Smooth, sweet, ripe chocolate cherry Merlot flavors fan out across the satin textured mid-palate before the faintest hint of fine, gentle tannins carry the long finish. Almost opulent and very easy to drink.

    This wine is stunning. The little brother of Tronquoy Lalande and owned by the Montrose people, this wine is packed with fruit-lots of cassis on the palate. Smooth, sweet, and delicious. Last cases available and they will sell out quickly.

    Layered, ripe and polished, with red and black berry fruit, Asian spice, iron minerality, cedar, fig paste, chewy tannins and a long finish. Wow.
