Tasting Note:

Denis Durantou's 'entry level' wines, that is to say the wines not produced at his flagship Pomerol estate, Chateau L'Eglise Clinet always rank amongst our 'best value' buys. Saintayme, Chenade, Cruzelles and Montlandrie offer excellent value for money. Denis is quite rightly very proud of his 2017s, referring to them as a 'rare triplet' (with 2015 and 2016), and the Montlandrie is the star. There aren't many examples of 2017s that trump their 2016 counterparts, but here's one. Denis' plantings are really coming to fruition and the Cabernet Franc (20%) and the Cabernet Sauvignon (5%) really sing, providing wonderful aromatics, layers of complexity and fine, vivid, fruit lined tannins. High toned Cabernet fruit with hints of graphite and cranberry lead into a vibrant mid palate of unctuous yet taut crimson fruit. The tannins are so refined and layered with moreish fruit. Bravo! 40% new oak.
