Chateau La Chenade Lalande-de-Pomerol 2021 (En Primeur - Delivery 2024)

SKU
CHCH202111 UCAU
*This price includes all shipping and taxes- due 2024* The second wine from Chateau Les Cruzelles. Where the flagship wine consists of a considerable portion of Cabernet Franc, La Chenade is 100% Merlot. With only 30% new oak, the fruit is the star of this wine. The nose bursts with bright, red fruits such as strawberries and cherries, some ripe plum, mint and pie crust. The palate shows a vibrant, mineral acidity and notes of wet stone, graphite and liquorice. The texture is velvet and textured and the tannins are fine and elegant. Beautiful Merlot.

Critic Scores & reviews

    "A medium-bodied, ripe and textured Lalande with creamy, fleshy tannins. Succulent core of ripe plum fruit, chocolate and some orange and peppermint. Fragrant and plush. 100% merlot."

    "Floral strawberry and cherry fruits, there is a soft creamy scented element to the fruits on the nose. Such well-balanced acidity and brightness on the palate, a real kick of life and burst of flavour with red berries but a minerality that’s really to the fore - the crushed stone, wet slate, graphite and liquorice coming through giving nuance and angles while the soft, silky tannins glide over the tongue. This feels gently round and persistent, a good weight in the mouth, not dense as such but layers of flavour and cooling touches. You get the expansion and this is sustained. Not heavy but refined and understated. Gorgeous terroir in the glass, no frills here but such precision and identity. Ageing in 30% new oak. 20,000 bottle production."

    "The 2021 La Chenade, from vineyards in Lalande de Pomerol that were saved from the frost, offers up rich aromas of berries and plums mingled with loamy soil and spices. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and seamless, it's built around powdery tannins and lively acids."

Locations

France

Wine is being produced throughout France and has been done for over 2,500 years with certain Châteaux dating their history back to Roman times, around 6th Century BC. Ranking second in the world in per-capita consumption and first in total production quantity. More so than the overall quantity of wine is the quantity of truly great wines coming out of France makes the nation the envy of wine-making nations worldwide.

Two concepts pivotal to the higher end French wines, in particular, are the idea of 'terroir' and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) system. Terroir refers to the way the geography, geology and climate find their way into the glass, telling a story of the origin of the wine. The AOC was set up in 1935 and has the primary goal of protecting the authenticity of the wines and the livelihoods of the producers. Appellation rules strictly define which varieties of grapes and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover entire regions, individual villages or in some cases, like in Burgundy even specific vineyards.

Classic wine regions in France include Champagne (home of Champagne), Burgundy (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot), Alsace (Aromatic varietals), Loire Valley (Chenin Blanc, Crémant) and the Rhône Valley (Syrah, Grenache Mourvedre)

The Bordeaux classification of 1855 is still in use, as is the Sauternes and Barsac Classification of the same year. Wines from certain regions can be bought En Primeur, which is when the wine is sold prior to it being bottled.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux produces some of the most highly sought after and revered wines in the world. Located close to the coast, in the south-west of France the town and is divided by the Gironde River. Wines to the west of the river are referred to as left bank, and are Cabernet dominant. To the East of the river, on the right bank Merlot is the dominant grape variety. Throughout the 57 appellations, over 10,000 wine-making châteaux grow the red grapes; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. These are commonly blended and collectively referred to as clarets. Smaller amounts of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc is also grown in Bordeaux.

In 1855, due to the high export demands of Bordeaux wines, Emporer Napoleon III requested an official Bordeaux classification system, based on market costs of the wines at the time. The Chateaux were classified in to five ‘growths’ from first growth to fifth growth and cru Bourgois. Also in 1855 The Sauternes and Barsac classification covered the sweeter wines, with Chateau d’Yquem the only Superior First Growth, followed by Premiers Crus and Deux Deuxièmes Crus.

Lalande-De-Pomerol

Lalande-de-Pomerol is a red-wine Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) in Bordeaux, France. It sits on the right bank of the Garonne and Dordogne rivers, just north of the Pomerol appellation, and fruit yields here are permitted to be slightly higher than those in the Pomerol AOC. Ideal for the area’s viticulture, the soil in Lalande-de-Pomerol is a combination of clay, gravel, and sand. Merlot is the primary grape variety, along with Cabernet Franc, small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, and Malbec. With Lalande-de-Pomerol wines, expect red-berry fruits on the nose; on the palate, expect a structured, textural wine with silky tannins. With oak ageing – ageing potential is five to 10 years – flavours of plum, game, leather, and coconut can develop.
