2015 Siaurac, Lalande de Pomerol

SKU #1399751 91 points Decanter

 Second vintage with Penelope Godefroy, and at the start of the organic conversion. This is lovely, already accessible with its dark brambly fruits and soft tannins. The emphasis here is definitely on pleasure, and it's extremely tasty as a result. Drinking Window 2018 - 2030 (JA)  (9/2017)

90 points James Suckling

 Blackcurrants and leaves, as well as violets. The palate has silky yet dense and smooth tannins wrapped in dark-plum flavors. Drink or hold.  (2/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Features a tasty core of steeped plum and black cherry fruit laced with dried anise, incense and mineral hints. Reveals a flash of savory through the finish, though the fruit has the upper hand overall. Drink now through 2022. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. (JM)  (3/2018)

Jancis Robinson

 Very thick and sweet. Super-opulent but not overdone. Rich and peppery. Well up to AOC Pomerol standard. (JR)  (4/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Siaurac has long been making some "nifty" Lalande-de-Pomerol and this is well worth investigating. It has a sensual, fruit-forward bouquet with plenty of black cherry and cassis fruit that does not overpower. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin. There is a couple of layers of new oak to be absorbed, but there is sufficient fruit to do that and it finished with attractive truffle and white pepper notes that offer fine salinity. (NM)  (4/2016)

Vinous

 The 2015 Siaurac is plump, juicy and impeccably balanced. This is an especially gracious, mid-weight Lalande de Pomerol, especially within the context of a vintage that produced wines that are often more exuberant and lush. (AG)  (2/2018)

This easy to drink wine starts with a flowery expression that melds to a silky middle of black currant and dark cherry fruit. This is satin textured, savory and a fantastically smooth and delicious drink.

A right bank classic! Lush, velvety, full of bramble fruit, coffee, and some exotic spices - guava paste? - The tannins are present but ripe, and the whole experience is one of pure pleasure.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the M├ędoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
