Delicious wine from proprietor Denis Durantou, who is better known as the magician behind the great Pomerols of L-Eglise Clinet. This relatively nearby vineyard in Lalande has turned out a nice, ripe, rich, medium-bodied, opulent style of wine with lovely mulberry and black cherry fruit, as well as hints of new saddle leather and spice. It is medium-bodied, easygoing and doesn-t have the substance or power to last more than 4 or 5 years, but so what? Drink it up. 2014-2019 Rating: 87-88 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com(Aug 2014)

The nose is fresh the palate has a mix of bramble and black cherry but it fills out in the middle with sweet ripe black plum and although the back palate has a fleshy richness the finish is brambly lighter and fresher. 2016-27. Rating: 88-92 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk(May 2014)

Denis Durantou says he expends just as much energy on his “lesser” wines as he does on L’Eglise-Clinet and it shows in the quality of this rich, textured, aromatic, black fruited red. There’s almost a note of Mediterranean herbs about this - in 2013! 2016-23 Rating: 93 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com(May 2014)
