94 Points, James Suckling; 92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck; 91 Points, Wine Enthusiast; 90 Points, Decanter; 90 Points, VinousJames Suckling: “Aromas of blackberries, licorice and spices. Full-bodied, dense and layered. Shows the structure and muscle of this estate. Needs time to soften and come together. Serious. Try in 2021.”Jeb Dunnuck: “While a step back from the sensational looking 2016, the 2015 Tronquoy Lalande is nevertheless a smokin’ good bottle of wine. Plums, graphite, earth and smoked herb notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentration, plump, rounded 2015 that’s a huge success for the northern Médoc in 2015. Give it a few years and enjoy over the following two decades.”Wine Enthusiast: “With the same winemaking team as Château Montrose, this ripe, dense wine has something of the same approach to the rich tannins and concentrated black fruit. This powerful wine has a dry, age-worthy character as well as generous fruit that keeps a crisp, succulent character. It will be best from 2024.”Decanter: “All the richness with none of the toughness this wine showed in the past – even some florality and freshness to make it more impressive.”Vinous: “The 2015 Tronquoy-Lalande is just as pretty as it was from barrel. In 2015, Tronquoy leans more towards elegance and silkiness rather than power. Medium in body and gracious, with fine tannins, the 2015 will drink well pretty much upon release and has enough pedigree to develop nicely for the next 10-15 years, maybe more. Readers who enjoy wines with greater aromatic nuance will want to cellar the 2015 for at least a few years, as today, the wine is quite fruity. Time in the glass brings attractive floral, savory, spice and earthy notes that will become more prominent over time.”
