Château l'Ancien Lalande-de-Pomerol 2000

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Toasty aromatics lead into a fresh palate with richness and complexity. Delicious chunky fruit, very expressive Merlot. 2–10 years.

Ancien Wines:
In 1992, we harvested our first two tons of Pinot Noir from four rows atop a knoll in the southwest corner of Carneros. Producing but five barrels, this marked the beginning of Ancien Wines.

In 1992, we harvested our first two tons of Pinot Noir from four rows atop a knoll in the southwest corner of Carneros. Producing but five barrels, this marked the beginning of Ancien Wines. In the years since, we have continued our pursuit of those rare and special plots where Pinot Noir can rise from grHaynes__Mteat to sublime. We have added to our pursuit of Pinot Noir, the production of its close relative, Pinot Gris, as well as its Burgundian sibling, Chardonnay. For both of these white wines, we closely follow the French artisanal tradition of in-barrel fermentation and aging. Read less

Intense color, purple highlights. Concentrated nose of ripe red and black fruits intermingled with a toasty, chocolaty note. Dense in the mouth, the tannins are present, enveloped by fatness and freshness. A concentrated style from this generous vintage that speaks for itself. Nice length. Optimum drinking: 2006–2007.

The owners of Château Garraud also own this property, and make this wine at their châteaux, the cleanest, most meticulously organized one we've ever seen. The wine is juicy but extremely well-balanced, with good acidity, some new wood flavors, and a long finish. The winemaker thinks it will develop in bottle for 10-12 years and then plateau for a long time.

A right bank red for a powerful vintage. Try this rich and robust wine with grilled lamb or beef brisket.
