Château La Menotte

AOC Lalande de Pomerol Red

This small family-property is ideally situated in the middle of the Lalande de Pomerol appellation in Néac. This small winegrowing appellation totalling just 1,100 hectares lies north of the town of Libourne and is bordered by the Pomerol appellation to the south, with just the Barbanne river forming the line of separation, and by the Montagne Saint-Emilion appellation to the east. The wine is vinified with great care by the SIMON family. The Merlot is dominant and the wine shows all the richness, fineness and elegance of this exceptional terroir.

    TASTING NOTES

    This vintage is a deep purple hue with slightly brick tints. Its black fruit aromas (blackcurrant and blackberry) are highlighted by notes of oak and leather. The supple, rounded tannins gain in intensity and linger on the palate, while the finish is harmonious, displaying earthy notes and fine aromatic complexity. A very fine example of this prestigious appellation. Enjoy over a festive meal, for example with braised beef.

    TASTING NOTES

    Limpid and brilliant in appearance, the colour ranging from hues of deep ruby red to still purple tints at the rim. The equally generous bouquet fills the senses with spices, blackberry and blackcurrant with a floral note evocative of violets. The palate is warm, ample and fruity, underpinned by tannins which are still young but with a little bottle ageing will evolve yet creamier extract. A decidedly excellent achievement in what is already a legendary year.

    TASTING NOTES

    Presenting itself under the best auspices with its beautiful purple color and purple reflections, it is a cocktail of black fruits and spices with a hint of mint. On the palate it reveals a pretty frame where fruit abounds and develops a soft and supple substance, all in velvety and aromas, prolonged by well-integrated tannins. A beautiful representative of its appellation. Will best enjoyed with a meal and a perfect accompaniment for meats and cheeses.
