Reductive style, underneath which is some fine plum and black cherry fruit lifetd with some floral notes and white stone. Lovely musky raspberry and a nicely dense mid palate which quickly flushes through with fine minerality and energy. A very pure fruit character here, really vibrant and with some sweetness.
The 2021 La Chenade, from vineyards in Lalande de Pomerol that were saved from the frost, offers up rich aromas of berries and plums mingled with loamy soil and spices. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and seamless, it's built around powdery tannins and lively acids.

The 2021 La Chenade is a soft, supple Lalande de Pomerol loaded with charm. Succulent dark cherry, plum, mocha, chocolate and spice are nicely pushed forward in this attractive, easygoing 2021. La Chenade is all Merlot this year, as the Franc was used for the Cruzelles. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2022
