Reviews and Ratings

Produced by Château Rauzan-Gassies, Château Bel Orme Tronquoy-De-Lalande 2016 is a full-bodied Bordeaux blend of 58% Merlot and 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, fragrant with dark berry, cherry, sous bois, savoury herb and toasty oak spice flavours matched with vibrant acidity on the palate. Tannins are grippy and the wine would benefit from three to four more years of cellar time. Try in 2023. The story of Château Bel Orme begins in 1936 when Paul and Lucienne Quié, purchased the Château, an area of 30 hectares on Bordeaux's left bank, six miles north of Pauillac, with vineyards extending over the hills of the village. The name of the winery dates back to the 18th century in reference to "Bel Orme" a wooded area that surrounds the Château. In 1946, Paul and Lucienne Quié acquired Château Rauzan-Gassies, a second-growth Margaux.- Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
