Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, March 2018

One of the clutch of right bank estates owned by winemaker-extraordinaire, Denis Durantou, of Eglise-Clinet. Ch Montlandrie is located just east of St Emilion, and has been a property to watch since Denis first released the 2009. The 2014 is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, and is a testament to the quality possible in St Emilion’s satellite appellations. An opulent dark fruit nose with freshly cracked black pepper spice. Medium bodied, with rich dark fruits and svelte tannins and a long black tea savour on the finish.

Region

Bordeaux, Red Bordeaux

When the Romans first planted a few vines on the limestone outcrops of St Emilion in the early years of the first century, and tasted what was, by all accounts, rather thin, bitter wine, they can hardly have imagined that the region's greatest red wines would become the most sought afterfine wines in the world. From the days in the seventeenth century when the then owners of Ch Haut Brion, the de Pontac family, became the first to export to the UK, selling their wine in their own tavern, the Pontac's Head, red Bordeaux or claret has been the Englishman's favourite. The wines of the 1855 Classification are merely the tip of the iceberg. Bordeaux AC accounts for about half of all wine produced in the area, from vineyards outside the regional or communal appelations and often blended by the negociant houses. Simpler beasts these although still clearly related to their more illustrious cousins - relatively light and fresh, full of fruit, with soft tannins making for delicious, and good value, early drinking.
