CHÂTEAU LES CRUZELLES
2009 Lalande de Pomerol
|Sub-district||Pomerol & Lalande de Pomerol|
|Village||Lalande de Pomerol|
Another Denis Durantou wine, and another success. Lush, cool and precise fruit, which is difficult to pull off in a wine with such weight. All of a piece, very expressive, just a slightly sandpapery texture poking through on the finish. Rating: 92 L&S (Apr 2010)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A brilliant effort from proprietor Denis Durantou, this wine (80% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon) hit 14.5% natural alcohol. Rich mocha and black cherry notes are followed by a powerful, lavishly rich, almost extravagant style of wine that is almost atypical for Lalande de Pomerol, yet the purity, richness, and density are all there. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. Rating: 90-92 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Apr 2010)
Blueberry and loads of darks fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and silky tannins. Juicy finish. Rating: 90-93 James Suckling, The Wine Spectator (Apr 2010)
Very rich and broad and opulent. Very hot and exaggerated. Rather rustic. Concentrated. Awkward. Drink 2016-2022 Rating: 15.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2010)
