Château La Pensée is another good value Lalande de Pomerol, offering very decent quality. Unlike the other wines of this weekly offer, it is made of 100% Merlot, which makes it a fruity easy red for early drinking. A modern wine with vibrant aromas of fresh red fruit (raspberry, strawberry) and a light wooden touch on the finish. Just delicious!
