"The 2017 Tournefeuille has an attractive bouquet with black cherries, blueberry and violet scents all neatly entwined with the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, quite grippy tannin. There is plenty of fruit here and unlike other Lalande de Pomerols, there is commendable substance towards the finish. This has good potential." -NM, May/2018
