    This is a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon grown on plots high up in the Côtes de Castillon. A very inviting highly aromatic nose of fresh cassis, blueberries and crunchy cranberries, with hints of spice and gravely minerals. Silky cashmere tannins and layered fruit flow through the broad rich palate. There is a little more structure and muscle thanks to the Cabernet Sauvignon, and this will benefit from a few years ageing. This will offer great value to those looking for something to cellar and enjoy in a few years’ time.

    A sleeper in 2018, Montlandrie is powerful, racy and super-expressive. Succulent red cherry, raspberry, mocha, licorice and rose petals all run through this racy, polished Côtes de Castillon from Denis Durantou. Sweet floral notes add brightness in the glass. The tannins just need time to soften. Tasted two times.

    Produced by Denis Durantou of Château L’Eglise Clinet, the 2018 Montlandrie is a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon with 14.5% alcohol and is currently aging in 40% new oak. Deep purple-black in color, it features fragrant notes of lilacs, Morello cherries and blueberry compote over a core of plum preserves and woodsmoke plus a waft of underbrush. The medium to full-bodied palate is richly fruited with black and blue fruits, lifted by earthy accents and lovely freshness, finishing long and velvety textured.

    This shows a really beautiful core of ripe fruit with dark chocolate and blueberries. Full body and firm, chewy tannins. Flavorful finish.

    This is very good quality and has beautiful complexity right off the bat - Denis Durantou's Castillon estate is pretty much always one of my value picks, although the price is rising. This takes its time, there’s a touch of reduction that clears in the glass before the layers of juicy brambly fruits come to the fore ending with a fairly delicate finish. Although the power is clearly there, he keeps a clever nuance in the flavours. 40% new oak was used. Drinking Window 2021 - 2030

    The tannins are incredibly commanding here, but if you can see past them the fruit is insanely beautiful and dramatic. With amazing complexity and layers and layers of red fruit, this is a luxurious wine with staggering grip and it will repay only the most patient of collectors.

    Wine Spectator, April 2019,
    Score: 89-92

    On the ripe and slightly heady side, with a healthy dose of toasted vanilla surrounding the steeped plum and blackberry fruit. Shows a bit more oomph than freshness, but remains solid.

Region

Côtes de Castillon

Lying directly to the east of St Emilion with vineyards running from the river Dordogne up into the rolling hills, Côtes de Castillon is an area which produces reliable, good value reds from Merlot. In particular certain wine estates have been purchased by the owners of more illustrious Right Bank properties, such as the Thienpont and von Neipperg families. The consequent input of investment and expertise has seen the quality of Côtes de Castillon wines soar.
