CHÂTEAU MONTLANDRIE

2016 Côtes de Castillon

Grapes Cab Franc, Cab Sauv, Merlot
Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Sub-district Saint Emilion & Satellites
Village Côtes de Castillon

75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep glass-coating colour. Seriously dry limestone-influenced fruit and power. There's real drive under this, a firm mineral power. Harder work now than some of the easier wines in the Denis Durantou stable, but time will reward. Drinking range: 2024 - 2032 Rating: 90-92 L&S (Apr 2017)

This brilliant property delivers value and succulent fruit year after year. Particularly intense and packed with blackberry and raspberry fruits in the 2016 vintage, just now softening to become perfect to drink.Jane Anson, Decanter(Jun 2020)

Another one of those hidden gems from the Castillon region of Bordeaux, the 2016 Château Montlandrie is a rock star of a wine that readers should snatch up! From more clay soils (the region is mostly limestone) and with surprising power and richness, it offers a stacked bouquet of red and black currants, smoked earth, and chocolate. Full-bodied and concentrated, with ripe tannins and terrific balance, it’s a winner. Drink it over the coming 10-15 years.

The 2016 Montlandrie is a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon picked between 3-17 October. It was picked at 40 hectoliters per hectare and raised in 60% new oak (although my sample was from a one-year-old barrel). It is the first vintage to include more than 80% of the vines that were planted by Denis Durantou after 2008. This has a more broody bouquet than the two Lalande-de-Pomerols, just a touch of leafiness originating from the Cabernet Sauvignon that enhances the complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with fine structure, more saline than the Les Cruzelles, backward at the moment, but the Cabernets impart some lovely graphite notes on the saline finish. Superb. Expect this to land towards the top of my banded score once in bottle. Drinking range: 2021 - 2036 Rating: 91-93 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com(Apr 2017)

Château Montlandrie

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.
