2014 Montlandrie 75CL

Cotes de Castillon

Regular price ₱2,295

TASTING NOTES:


Wine Rating: RP 90 points
Drink by: 2019 - 2029

The 2014 Montlandrie, the Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux from Denis Durantou, is a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon (yes, different to the percentages stated during primeur—happy to correct it now!). It offers attractive red cherry, wild strawberry and pastille-like scents on the pure bouquet, though maybe I discern a little more complexity on Denis' two Lalande-de-Pomerols, La Chenade and Les Cruzelles.
The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This feels a little compact at the moment (possibly because of the low pressure system on the day that I tasted?), although there is still commendable depth of fruit and a gentle grip on the persistent finish. I would just give this a couple more years in bottle.

Château Montlandrie is situated in Cotes de Castillon and is owned by the brilliant Denis Durantou, owner of Châteu L’Eglise Clinet in Pomerol as well as vines with Château Saintayme, Château Cruzelles and Château Chenade - who purchased the property in 2009.

The vineyards are planted with a majority of Merlot (65%) then Cabernet Franc (20%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) however Cabernet Sauvignon has only been used since the 2013 vintage.
