The Montlandrie is a blend of 75% Merlot picked from 20th until 23rd September and 25% Cabernet Franc picked between 24th and 26th September aged in 50% new oak. It has a very lifted bouquet with mulberry fruit a touch of oyster shell and orange blossom. It unfurls nicely over five minutes for this is certainly a sample that needs time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grip on the entry. It is a bold Cotes de Castillon wine quite sinewy with firm grip but it keeps it freshness from start to finish. Very fine. Tasted April 2012.

Lots of bouncy acidity here with a nice range of blue and black fruits and and mouthwatering pain d'épices note on the toasted finish.-J.M.

Deep purple-ruby. Explosive merlot-driven aromas of blackcurrant blackberry vanilla and milk chocolate. hen rich sweet soft and fresh with sweet blackberry and blueberry flavors joined by a note of balsamic vinegar on the long smooth finish. A second sample that had been prepared four days earlier had lost the wonderful charm of the merlot and its cabernet franc-induced austerity was dominating. But with its floral white pepper strawberry and mineral notes this sample was just as good as the first one only different.

A thrilling offering from proprietor Denis Durantou (who also owns Pomerol’s l’Eglise-Clinet), this blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc is a surprisingly large-scaled Cotes de Bordeaux Castillon revealing a dense ruby/purple color as well as lots of sweet mulberry, kirsch, black currant, licorice, spring flower and graphite notes. Medium to full-bodied as well as remarkably concentrated, this wine outperforms many of Bordeaux’s more famous names in this vintage. A stunner in quality and value, it can be enjoyed over the next 10+ years. It is a sleeper of the vintage. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Floral perfumed aromas of rose petal define the nose. The medium-bodied palate shows excellent balance with subtle tannins that are already integrated. Light on its feet this shows excellent fruit and finesse. Delicious. Load up! Owned by Denis Durantou of Chateau L'Eglise Clinet since 2009. Enjoy upon release and over the following 5-8 years.
