ABOUT THIS WINE - DANIEL'S NOTE
Château Tronquoy-Lalande, situated in the heart of Saint-Estèphe, is one of the most highly regarded wine that is not included into the 1855 Bordeaux Grand Cru Classification. Therefore, it received the mention "Cru Bourgeois". Many people, including myself, consider it as a "Grand Cru" wine due to its complexity and finesse.
