This very old and unassuming Saint Estèphe vineyard has an exceptional terroir and is an absolute gem: well worth the detour! More info

Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon play an equal role (45% each) in this blend, giving this Saint-Estèphe wine a rounded character. While its older Montrose brother is one of the Médoc's more powerful, concentrated wines, Tronquoy is instead more rounded, delicate and indulgent. It can be drunk young and fruity, but also ages gracefully.

Château Tronquoy Lalande serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Agneau de sept heures au four, Cassolette de ris et rognons de veau à la moutarde, Filet de boeuf truffé sauce demi-glace.

Peak: Drink until 2027

  • Vintage score: 15/20

    Information about domainChâteau Tronquoy Lalande

    Château Tronquoy-Lalande has an admirably well-situated vineyard on gravelly hilltops facing the Gironde estuary. Located near Montrose in Saint-Estèphe, it was bought by Olivier and Martin Bouygues a few months after the second growth. The story goes that Melissa Bouygues fell under the spell of the Château's architecture, and that's why the family bought it. Tronquoy-Lalande could have been swallowed up by Montrose, but that didn't happen. It continues to develop its own style, and proves itself from year to year as one of the Médoc's finest crus bourgeois. Since 2012, the château has been run by Hervé Berland from Mouton-Rothschild.
