Château Lalande-Borie was created almost entirely in 1970, through the purchase of a 30 hectare third growth plot in the Saint Julien appellation. The name Lalande-Borie combines the names of the plot on the land register and a great winegrowing family who have been established in the Médoc for more than a century and own several prestigious grands crus: Ducru-Beaucaillou, Grand-Puy-Lacoste and Haut-Batailley. Lalande-Borie's wines are vinified and matured with the same techniques, the same care and same spirit as those produced by the Borie family's other properties. The winery buildings were fully renovated in 1982. The modern vat room and cellar facilities are designed for optimal vinification. Château Lalande-Borie has acquired a very good reputation in a relatively short space of time.
About the cuvée
Château Lalande-Borie produces fleshy and sappy wines, not overly tannic, where we find the balance and elegance of Saint-Julien wines. A very fine wine to keep in the cellar and to pair with a fine cut of meat for example.
