Château Siaurac, Plaisir De Siaurac, Lalande de Pomerol 2014
Produced from young vines at Château Siaurac, the wine, dominated by 90% Merlot, is generous, approachable and ripe. It was matured in tank rather than wood, allowing the black fruits to come through strongly. The aftertaste brings out fruitiness as much as the gentle tannins.
