This shows plenty of wet earth and blueberry and black-olive character. Full body, fine and round tannins and a juicy finish. Hot stones and gravel. Intense. Yes. Drink now or hold. Drinking range: 2018 - Rating: 93 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (Feb 2018)
Denis Durantou’s wine comes from gravel soils and tends to have a mineral note to it. This is scented, attractive and full of succulent blackberry, raspberry and bramble fruit flavours, supported by tannins that creep up on you and provide structure.

80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc. 30% new oak. Purplish crimson. Quite sweet and meaty. Gentle - obviously not top drawer but fun and easy. A bit tart and dry on the end. Needs food. Wait awhile? Fine sandy tannins in abundance. Sweet oak. Drinking range: 2020 - 2027 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2016)
One of the brightest stars of Pomerol is undoubtedly Denis Durantou of the highly acclaimed Château l’Eglise-Clinet. Thankfully this glory is not enough for Denis and he also has a smaller estate in the less esteemed Lalande de Pomerol. Here Denis' skill and experience can produce magnificent wines that are a fraction of the price. The property is Château les Cruzelles, where he makes both Les Cruzelles but also La Chenade, another Lalande-de-Pomerol cuvée from the younger vines. He was even making this with Cruzelles’ grapes before he bought the estate in 2000. We champion this wine every year on primeur as it represents such consistently good value for money. Beautiful Bordeaux wine at an incredibly fair price - a rare gem.
