Due for release shortly, Château Tronquoy-Lalande is a Cru Bourgeois estate in St-Estèphe and the sibling-estate to the illustrious Château Montrose. From the 2022 vintage, the wine will be known as simply Tronquoy, so we will refer to it as that hereafter.
Tronquoy was one of the first vineyards planted in St-Estèphe, in 1791. Francois Tronquoy opposed the 1855 Classification, hence this estate is the one that got away, remaining a humble St-Estèphe commune wine. Before the Bouygues brothers bought both châteaux in 2006, Tronquoy was underperforming and relatively overlooked in this country. Following a ten million euro renovation, recent vintages have shown rapid improvement.
Tronquoy have not released their wines en primeur of late, so the 2022 marks a return to confidence that the wine measures up to its ownership. This new release will eventually be bottled with a more contemporary label, which nods at the link with Montrose.
Offered En Primeur, landing in spring 2025.
