La Chenade Lalande de Pomerol 2014
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 La Chenade, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, has a straightforward but appealing bouquet with ample dark cherries, bergamot tea and a touch of dried flowers. The palate is medium-bodied with a tightly-knit structure. I appreciate the depth here, the focus and finesse, a wine that threatened to blossom in bottle... and it has. Given the market prices for this Lalande-de-Pomerol, Denis Durantou's 2014 comes highly recommended.
VinousGood full ruby. Highly nuanced nose combines red cherry, strawberry, flowers and fresh herbs, complicated by sexy oak spices. In the mouth, almost liqueur-like cherry, dark berry, licorice and mint flavors offer good concentration and a suave texture. Finishes with sweet tannins and a lingering floral quality.
Wine SpectatorThis has a solid core of steeped raspberry and blackberry fruit flavors, backed by black tea, cinnamon and anise notes. A steady stream of fine-grained tannins gives this a persistent finish. Drink now through 2021. 1,967 cases made.
