Tasting Notes
89/100 - Wine Spectator
"Château Bel Orme Tronquoy-de-Lalande 2010 shows a gutsy feel, with lightly mulled plum and steeped cassis fruit melded with singed apple wood and smoldering charcoal. The long, fleshy finish lets the roasted wood edge play out. Needs a little cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2024".
15,75/20 (Recommended wine) - Decanter
"Sleek, discreet blackcurrant nose with chocolate and mocha touches. Solid with lots of flesh and quite robust. It should acquire more harmony with time. Drink 2014-2020".
14,5/20 - Le Point
"Fruits noirs, réglisse, très savoureux, tanins veloutés, épices douces, balsamique, note minérale, long, très harmonieux. O=2014 / G=15 ans".

The history of the Château
The plans of Château BEL ORME TRONQUOY-DE-LALANDE were drawn by Victor Louis (1731-1800), the architect who drew the Grand Théâtre in Bordeaux and the Palais Royal arches in Paris. In 1936, Château BEL ORME TRONQUOY-DE-LALANDE became the home of the QUIE family. The Chateau owes its name to the Tronquoy de Lalande family, who owned it in the 19th century and contributed significantly to its renown. Paul QUIE, whose father was already in the wine profession, purchased the chateau from the Delor Firm in 1936. In 1968, his son Jean-Michel took over the family estate. Today, his children, Anne-Françoise and Jean-Philippe, work at his side.
