Very consistent and long. Impressive. Hard to decide whether it’s better than 2015. Beautiful. Drink after 2021.

From more clay soils (the region is mostly limestone) and with surprising power and richness, it offers a stacked bouquet of red and black currants, smoked earth, and chocolate. Full-bodied and concentrated, with ripe tannins and terrific balance, it’s a winner. Drink it over the coming 10-15 years.

The mouthfilling finish brings you back for more. Drink now through 2027. 3,400 cases made. — JM

Decanter,
Dark and bold, with plenty of fruit extract. Full, intense, lots of drive; powerful, well-managed tannins. A condensed package, merits another year in bottle.

The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins, and quite tarry in style, with a gentle grip on the saline, almost Left Bank-inspired finish. Fine, but a bit broody at present. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. -- Neal Martin

Medium-bodied, it has a chewy texture and oodles of freshness framing the youthful spiced plums flavors, finishing on a lingering savory note.- LPB

The wine is soft, forward, earthy, fresh and fruity, with lush textures and loads of sweet, ripe, lifted fruits in the finish. This is drinking great today and should remain at this level for at least 7-10 years. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/wine-tasting-note/?vintage=2016&wine=Chateau%20Montlandrie
