Tasting Note:

Denis always has a catchphrase for each vintage. He describes the 2013s as 'unspittable' wines. It's a bon mot. 'Unspittable', because there is so little wine it would be a crime to, and 'unspittable' as the wines are gourmand and cry out to be consumed! The 2013 Montlandrie includes Denis first ever Cabernet Sauvignon vines from this site up near the windmill in Castillon. It is more brooding and introspective than the Lalande de Pomerols. With aeration, there are notes of flowers, griotte, cherry liqueur and earth. It seems like a contradiction, but one feels that the fruit is quite hedonistic, packed with berry fruit, yet this is a taut muscular wine framed with wonderful suave tannins. Excellent.
