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. Superb 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 glassful now. Rating: 92-92 L&S (Dec 2018)

The Montlandrie is from limestone soils, a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc aged in 50% new oak. The nose is very harmonious and pure with scents of strawberry cheesecake, fresh raspberry and a touch of spice. There is just a little reduction but it soon blows away. The palate is medium-bodied with very smooth, filigree tannins. There is a fine sense of symmetry to this wine, focused and long in the mouth, with a sensual dark cherry and bergamot tinged finish. Gorgeous. Rating: 93 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com(Feb 2012)
A solid wine, with gorgeous and intense fruit . Full and velvety, loads going on here. 70% Merlot and 30% cabernet Franc.James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com(May 2011)
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.
