Tasting Note:

Denis Durantou is one of the most exciting winemakers on the Right Bank.

La Chenade is the best known of these, and now hails entirely from a vineyard that can be seen from Eglise Clinet on the very border of Pomerol itself. The 70% of Merlot in his excellent 2005 makes for a very juicy mouthful, while the 20% of Cabernet Franc gives a perfect savoury balance and the fresh tannins finish the experience off nicely.
