In the world of art and wine,there are subject matters of such grandeur and refinement that humour, insofar as it offers a novel viewpoint,should make way for deliberation.Landscape,a timeless genre in both France and China,is one such exception,and so is the highly respected Lalande-de-Pomerol,prized for its intensity, potency and structure. Doing away with his usual alterego, this master piece encompasses practically every element imaginable in landscape. Resembling a court painting, this exceptional art piece deserves to be paired with a fine wine of similar stature, calling for a discerning connoisseur.
This outstanding wine is a blend of the best parcels from Lalande-de-Pomerol,as mall and renowned terroir of Bordeaux,just a few steps from the great Pomerol appellation.With a dark cherry robe, this wine reveals lovely aromas of red and black fruits with the hint of minerality (88%Merlot,7%Cabernet Francand 5%Cabernet Sauvignon). This is an exceptionally elegant and well balanced wine, offering a long and subtle aftertaste.
