Lalande de Pomerol is a small city in Bordeaux with its own wine appellation. The climate is exceptional, warm and dry. It's rare that the grapes need anything other than the soil and climate to produce wonderful wines with aromas of figs and hints of chocolate. Château de Roquebrune has been a family-owned winery for over five generations. Florent Guinjard, the winemaker, is mindful of family tradition and considers the wine almost like one of his children. Harvesting is done by hand, and the entire vineyard is run using no chemical treatment. The Lalande de Pomerol 2005 red is full-bodied yet elegant, uniquely balanced with enough acidity and tannins to keep for several years, yet it's also a great drinking experience right now!
