  • Goedhuis, April 2019, Score: 91-93

    If this was a vineyard in Burgundy it would be called a Monopole, as Denis owns the entirety of the 0.5 hectare plot. 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc grows on a gravelly clay soil with a little sand. Dark red fruit, black cherry and juicy fleshy red plums. Very supple and silky with a beautiful clarity. Broader in style, it’s a bit more savoury and serious than its neighbour, La Chenade. With an intense mulberry core, the rich ripe fruit takes on complexity of creamy flavours and tobacco spice from the oak and some graphite minerality. It is seductive, extremely drinkable and always offers exceptional value.

    The 2018 Les Cruzelles emerges from older vines Denis Durantou's Lalande De Pomerol property. Clay/gravelly soils in this parcels give the Cruzelles a darker fruit profile and greater breadth as well as more tannic clout than its sibling. Inky, dark blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, menthol and licorice all develop in the glass. This is an especially powerful, structured expression of Lalande de Pomerol, and it works beautifully.

  • Wine Advocate, April 2019, Score: 91-93

    This is produced by Denis Durantou of Château L’Eglise Clinet. The 2018 Les Cruzelles is blended of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc with 40% new oak and 14.5% alcohol. Deep purple-black in color, it features slightly reduced notions of asphalt and tires over a core of warm red and black plums, blackberry pie and boysenberries with hints of fruitcake, incense and potpourri. Full-bodied, rich and packed with perfumed black fruit, it has a velvety texture and seamless freshness, finishing long.

  • James Suckling, April 2019, Score: 91-92

    This is a firm and lightly chewy young wine with dark berries and blueberries and wet earth. Stony undertone. Full to medium body. Linear finish.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2019, Score: 17++

    With ‘sweeter’ fruit notes on the nose than both Saintem and La Chenade, this is initially a more flattering wine, but the tannins swoop in and there is a very dry finish here which shows smokiness and tobacco tones, making this an exotic wine. It will need a decade, but I anticipate a complete and complex wine in time.

  • Wine Spectator, April 2019, Score: 90-93

    In a crowd-pleaser style, with notes of warm plum and cherry preserves forming the core and a light, toasty vanilla frame.


Château les Cruzelles

Part of the incredibly well-respected Durantou stable, this 10 hectare estate is rated as one of the "outstanding" Lalande-de-Pomerol Châteaux, in Robert Parker's Bordeaux guide. The grape varietals grown are 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc. Only 2,000 cases are made.


Lalande de Pomerol

Lalande de Pomerol is situated to the north-west of the Dordogne River north of Pomerol. Similar to the great Pomerol appellation the wines are Merlot dominated but sold at a fraction of the price. Some great value wines can be found to the south of the Lalande de Pomerol region as only the Barbanne River separates the two appellations.
