Four different grape varieties are used to make the premium red wine, Château Tronquoy-Lalande: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
Each one has a particular role to play, enhancing the others and bringing roundness or density, aroma and flavour or length.
Well-integrated tannins and a certain spiciness are typical features of the blend, together with the trademark tobacco, resin, blackcurrant and liquorice aromas which give the wine its distinctive personality.
After blending, the wine is matured for a year in French oak barrels.
Some vintages of Château Tronquoy-Lalande are remarkably long-lived.
