Enclos de Viaud Lalande-de-Pomerol 2018
- Textured, savoury
Enclos de Viaud is an amalgamation of seven wine properties, which have some of the best terroirs across four prestigious appellations of Bordeaux, Lalande-de-Pomerol being one of those appellations. The vineyard is situated on gravel and limestone soils, ideal for growing structured merlot-dominant blends.
The 2018 vintage delivers a wonderfully intense wine, illuminating the power of merlot, with a balance of bright, plush fruit, expressing notes of brambles and blackcurrants with an opulent influence of oak and lingering coconut and cedar aromas. The tannins are soft and silky, making this an approachable wine in its youth, but very enjoyable for the next five to ten years.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
