    The 2007 vintage is just hitting its stride, and we are loving it! Although it was a cooler year, the wines have aged beautifully and are showing great just now. An old favorite at K&L, Tronquoy Lalande gives us a slightly more Merlot dominate wine, which is more aromatically driven, and is now displaying a beautiful savory component. The wine certainly benefits from a couple of hours in a decanter, to encourage it to open fully and display all its layered complexity.

    Did someone say this was an off vintage? This bottle of wine would argue otherwise! The structure and balance are definitely up-to-par with other Tronquoy offerings. It has a very pretty nose with soft red fruit, a touch of pepper and great ripeness with balancing acidity. This will continue to age gracefully for years to come.

    2007 was a challenging vintage in many ways, cool and humid throughout much of the spring and summer. Thankfully, September and October were hot and dry and conditions during harvest were ideal. The best wines offer ripe, sweet fruit and fine tannins, and will make for very good near-term drinking. They are attractively priced, often at a steep discount. Compare the 2007 Tronquoy-Lalande, St-Estèphe $27.99 to the much heralded 2009, for example, which sells for $39.99. It won't require another decade in the cellar and is drinking very well right now. It is, in fact, aging a bit precociously, already showing some intriguing savory notes with hints of truffle and licorice, even at ten years of age. It still retains its youthful fruit, however, with notes of tart red cherry and fresh-picked blackberry. There is a lovely weight and ripeness here, and a positively silky texture along with very fine tannins. The blend is 58% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 12% Petit Verdot.

    This wine is right now drinking beautifully. The tannins softened providing for a silk palate, with cherry and plums notes along a coffee and spice touch.

    I love Tronquoy's Merlot heavy St Estephe style. Leafy, mineral driven red fruit, subtle licorice and earthy underbrush. The palate shows great structure, lovely acid driven style that just keeps you wanting more. Some gravelly notes, but more on the red fruit and leafy earth. Medium bodied but with a long subtle finish. Awesome example of cool vintage merlot and how fab it can be. A reminder that you should always buy the chateau not just the vintage.

    The 2007 Tronquoy Lalande is a powerful, structured Bordeaux that pairs very well with rich, charcoal grilled steak and loaded potatoes! This wine, which I enjoyed a couple of Fridays ago for steak and claret night has an exotic, open, mocha and cassis nose as well as plenty of back end grip. This is manly Bordeaux for a manly steak, and should be even better in a few years time.

    A great value property run by the Montrose people. We love 2007 like 1997, but 2007s are better. Red berries, licorice, flowers and spices on the nose. Supple and sweet.
    Drink from 2017 to 2020
