Tasting Note:

The 'entry level' wines, that is to say the wines not produced at the Durantou flagship Pomerol estate, Chateau L'Eglise Client, are always rank amongst our 'best value' buys. Saintayme, Chenade, Cruzelles and Montlandrie offer excellent value for money. Since Denis' death, his long-term collaborator, Olivier Gautrat has stepped up to assist Noémie and Constance. He describes 2021 as "Equilibre", a vintage of perfect balance. Montlandrie was a particular labour of love for Denis. We remember when he bought these vines and have watched with interest as he planted his 'Ferrari' Cabernet clones. Produced from 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2021 possesses a cool, structured core of dark, savoury fruit. There's admirable intensity, lots of character and a really fine seam of acidity.
