Tasting Note Robert Parker 85-86/100 - Vintage 2013 An attractive, easygoing, low-level Bordeaux with modest black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with underbrush and loamy soil notes, and a medium-bodied, delicate finish, the 2013 Lalande Borie can be drunk over the next 3-4 years. eRobert Parker (eRP/WA by Neal Martin) 86-88/100 - Vintage 2013 A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, the Lalande Borie has a straightforward leather and cedar scented bouquet that seems foursquare and conservative at this early stage. The palate is medium-bodied, with just a touch of herbaceous fruit on the entry, light and easy drinking with a soft landing on the graphite-tinged finish. Fine. Tasted March 2014. Wine Spectator 87/100 - Vintage 2013 Open-knit, with gentle-edged damson plum and bitter cherry notes lined with violet and sanguine hints. Offers a supple, perfumy finish. Drink now through 2019. Jeannie Cho Lee 90/100 - Vintage 2013 Aromatic and floral with delicacy and finesse. Lively acidity and red berry flavours. This site has 30 ha and the blend in this vintage is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 26% Merlot and 4% Caberent Franc. There is lovely purity and focus on this wine with less than 13% alcohol. Balanced and lively. Tasted in: Bordeaux, France. Maturity: Drink. Tasted: 01-Apr-2014 Jancis Robinson 16/20 - Vintage 2013 - When to drink: 2017 to 2023 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc. 30% new oak. Black cherry, really smooth and sleek. Well-managed tannins, just giving a nice chewy finish. Lots of dark chocolate – but not too bitter.
