STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Chateau Tronquoy Lalande takes its name fittingly from the family that owned the chateau in its formative years, the Tronquoy family. It changed hands in 1859. Today the estate is run by the Bouygues family, in 2006 they invested 10 million Euro in renovation after the purchase. This is a fortune when you consider the estate is a Cru Bourgeois and that the wines do not sell for that much money. such investment represents a serious commitment to quality.The new owners purchased additional vineyard land, increasing the size of the estate. The yields were reduced and the selection became much, more stringent. All of these changes have clearly helped improve the wine.
Dark garnet. Round and fresh and very appetising in contrast to the 2018! A real success. Long and fresh. Tasting really well already. 17/20 Points Jancis Robinson
