2010 Côtes de Castillon
|Sub-district||Saint Emilion & Satellites|
|Village||Côtes de Castillon|
70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc. Dark juice expression. There's more class here - a combination of good percentage of Cab Franc and the limestone terroir. Suberb rich flow - it really has pace and movement. Black cherry, subtle smoothness and wonderful length. After the primeur tasting Denis clearly stated that this Côtes de Castillon is his second greatest terroir after l'Église Clinet itself. Tasted recently (Nov 2018) it represents epic value, and even if it will continue to evolve, is a joyous glassfull now. Rating: 92-92 L&S (Dec 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Among the brightest stars of the exalted Pomerol appellation is Denis Durantou at Château l’Eglise-Clinet. A little further south-east, across the boundary in the Côtes de Castillon is Château Montlandrie that Denis bought in 2009. Much renovation has taken place at the 12ha vineyard that includes, almost uniquely for the Right Bank, new plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon that now make up 15% of the vineyard alongside the usual 65% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
