A major sleeper of the vintage from the proprietors of Montrose, this wine is now overseen by the man who replaced Jean-Bernard Delmas, Herve Berland, who worked for many years at Mouton-Rothschild. With stunning richness, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot exhibits lots of blueberry, boysenberry and mulberry notes, a full-bodied, voluptuously textured mouthfeel and terrific purity and length. The wine is very drinkable now and should continue to drink exceptionally well for at least another 12-15+ years. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

The rejuvenated Tronquoy-Lalande suffered some hail damage in early May, hence the lower yields at 35hl/ha and the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend (50%) complemented by 40% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. It has fine lift on the nose with a more red fruit profile than black: wild strawberry and a touch of pomegranate with some tertiary/scorched earth in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with a tannic entry, some fleshy Merlot complementing the cedar-infused Cabernet with some attractive peppery, animally notes towards the finish. A little rough around the edges at this early stage but I think this will meld together nicely by the time of bottling. Drink 2017- Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

This has a lovely length to it. And very polished. Full and super long. I am impressed. 50 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 40 percent Merlot and 10 percent Petit Verdot. jamessuckling.com

Rich and lush, particularly for the appellation, with gorgeous mouthfeel and alluring layers of warm plum sauce, dark fig, black currant and sweet tobacco. Good iron notes weave in quietly on the finish. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot. 60% of production. As a Merlot-heavy wine, it does lack a little freshness and precision on the nose. Very sweet and voluptuous. Then rather drying tannins on the finish. I think the second wine, Tronquoy Ste-Anne, is more successful within its category than this is. Very drying finish after notably lush palate. jancisrobinson.com

Deep Cabernet fruit, succulent middle and firm grip of ripe tannins, a success. Drink 2016-25. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

Bought by the owners of Montrose in 2006, the 2010 Tronquoy-Lalande is a deep ruby purple, with aromas of plums, blackberries and blueberries, supported by flavours of dark ripe berries and a nice freshness in the mid palate This wine has wonderful density, amazing intensity and refined tannins, and should be kept at least 5 years before drinking. asianpalate.com
