LALANDE DE POMEROL

Compartmental selection of Haut-Chaigneau
Vinifié out of tank drink

Château La Sergue is not just another Lalande de Pomerol. It is a wine in a category of its own, born in 1996.

Production is deliberately restricted to less than 15.000 bottles a year. Château La Sergue is the result of selecting and blending wine made with the best grapes from different vineyard plots, totalling 5 hectares area.

The Merlot grape predominates, giving Château La Sergue richness and body, with excellent ageing potential. Even when young, this wine is not overpowered by aggressive tannin. It has a lovely fruity complexity reminiscent of blackberry, raspberry, blackcurrant, etc. The Cabernet grapes provides a certain freshness on the palate. La Sergue is a wine of outstanding silkiness.

  Wow ! What a sensational sleeper of the vintage.
The 2005 La Sergue offers a beautiful perfume of roasted
coffee, cherry liqueur, black fruits, forest floor, and smoke, accompanied by a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, silky-textured Lalande de Pomerol.
It will offer abundant pleasure over the next 7-8 years.
