Château-Siaurac Lalande de Pomerol 2015
Siaurac has been made by an exceptional team as well: the technical director from Chateau Latour, Penelope Godefroy, has worked with, Jean-Claude Berrouet, who was the winemaker at Petrus for 40 years. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, this tastes rich, velvety and pure with notes of cherry, mocha, licorice & rose petals.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Siaurac has long been making some "nifty" Lalande-de-Pomerol and this is well worth investigating. It has a sensual, fruit-forward bouquet with plenty of black cherry and cassis fruit that does not overpower. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin. There is a couple of layers of new oak to be absorbed, but there is sufficient fruit to do that and it finished with attractive truffle and white pepper notes that offer fine salinity.
Bottle ShopSupple, round and deep in flavor, this Lalande de Pomerol showcases the pure deliciousness of good Merlot. Black cherry, licorice and sweet mocha abound. Plaisir is the second label of a fine and reputable Chateau in this Right Bank region.
