Chateau Lalande-Borie Saint-Julien 2009

Chateau Lalande-Borie Saint-Julien 750ML 2009     
Sku: 12645

Château Lalande Borie was founded in 1970 by Jean Eugène Borie on the Lalande terroir to which he added his family name and that he bought that same year from a classified growth in Saint Julien.

Today, managed by Jean-Eugène Borie SA, this wine has rapidly created a fine reputation. It belongs to Mrs Jean-Eugène BORIE, her daughter Sabine COIFFE and her son Bruno Eugène (Chairman of the board of directors).

 Wine Advocate 87 points (Feb 2012)
While I was hoping for something slightly better in 2009, this is still a seductive blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, bottled after 12 months to retain its fruit. With a very sweet spot in the middle, although it is technically dry, it exhibits loads of black currants, roasted herbs and tobacco leaf as well as hints of underbrush and forest floor. This medium-bodied wine is forward enough to drink over the next decade.

Wine maker notes
At Château Lalande Borie, all the grapes are harvested manually. Sorting is carried out directly in the vines on mobile tables to avoid contact between unhealthy and healthy grapes during transport to the vat room. Alcoholic fermentation is managed at relatively low temperatures (between 26 and 28°) to optimise the fruity aromas of the wine. Pumping-over is gentle to avoid extracting too many tannins and obtain a pleasant fattiness. Malolactic fermentation of the free run wine and the press-wine (pneumatic pressing) takes place in vats for optimal control.

The wine is barrelled in Bordeaux barrels (225L, French oak) immediately after blend selection with 20 to 30% new barrels according to the vintage. Unselected batches are sold in bulk to the Bordeaux trade under the Saint-Julien appellation. Bottling is performed with special care in regard both to oenological controls and homogenisation of the overall final wine. The 5 cork makers supplying the estate have signed a detailed quality charter.

Technical notes
The 25ha of the present vineyard of Château Lalande Borie is planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. With a density of 8,500 vines per hectare, the vineyard is managed traditionally (Medoc, double Guyot pruning etc.), while including the latest viticultural techniques: leaf-thinning by hand, green harvests in summer, partial cover crop, control of yields and application of sustainable phytosanitary treatments.
