Information About Montlandrie Cotes de Castillon

2009 was the first vintage released under the ownership of Denis Durantou, of Chateau Eglise Clinet fame. As one of the most talented and respected wine makers in Bordeaux Monsieur Durantou has introduced a serious regime at this 12 hectare estate in Cotes de Castillon, including plot by plot vinification. The terroir is similar to some of the best sites in St Emilion with a typical blend, 65% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, but with the introduction of 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines are aged in oak, 30% new, for an average of 14 months.

75% Merlot 20% Cabernet Franc 5% Cabernet Sauvignon - 45% New Oak. Good deep robe, peachy creamy nose, quite rich, very fruit driven, a big opulent mouthfeel too, this is sexy, ripe tannins, nice dusty finish too, the oak is just right.

Rating : 89-91/100

Denis Durantou. 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. 45% new oak. Dark healthy crimson. Sweet and open on the nose - charming even without great concentration. Very sweet start with marked acidity. Not, unlike some Castillons, like a St-Émilion. But competently made.

Rating : 16/20

The 2015 Montlandrie is a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, picked between September 29 and October 8, and matured in 45% new oak. This is perhaps more precocious on the nose compared to Denis Durantou's La Chenade and Les Cruzelles 2015s, gradually revealing an attractive floral, dried rose petal/pot pourri scent as it opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite grippy in the mouth, the acidity nicely judged here and again, very harmonious and sensual on the finish. You could almost whisk this out of barrel and drink this now, but preferably, give it 4-5 years in bottle.

Rating : 91-93/100

Owned by Denis Durantou’s (L’Eglise-Clinet). Vineyard restructured since 2009. Beautiful Merlot expression: berry fruit with a hint of chocolate. Lovely depth of fruit and tannins. Energy and depth on the palate then tannins build to a long finish.

Rating : 91/100
