The 2015 Lalande-Borie has a clean and composed bouquet with blackberry, cedar and light floral tones, well defined and perhaps one of the prettiest that I have encountered in recent years. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very harmonious with neatly embroidered new oak. I admire the precision here and that graphite seam toward the finish lends both freshness and an almost Pauillac-like personality.
