Château Tronquoy-Lalande, Bordeaux blanc 2016 - 0,75L
Since 2011, one hectare of the vineyard, located on the upper part of the property's plateau, is dedicated to the production of a white wine: Tronquoy-Lalande Blanc.
The 2016 vintage is a blend of 60% Semillon and 40% Sauvignon Gris. It is vinified in barrels and aged on lees for 6 to 9 months.
It is a vintage of great finesse with a very nice balance between suppleness and acidity.
Château Tronquoy-Laland is located in the heart of Saint-Estèphe. It represents one of the oldest crus of the appellation.
François Tronquoy, the first owner of the estate, gave his name to the estate, to which is added the place called La Lande on which is planted the historical plot of the Château.
Martin and Olivier Bouygues bought Château Tronquoy-Lalande in 2006. This marked the beginning of a new era.
The Château is now equipped with a large cellar for maturing and a new vat house with a vertical press and 22 thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks. The terroir is identified as one of the most beautiful of Saint-Estephe. It extends homogeneously over 30 hectares of historic hilltops in the heart of the appellation.
