Tasting Note:

Denis Durantou is famed for his wonderful Pomerol estate, Chateau L'Eglise Clinet, but he has spread his wings to St Emilion, Lalande de Pomerol and Castillon, and it is perhaps in these communes that he has best demonstrated his Midas touch. Year after year, the likes of La Chenade and Montlandrie have topped our best value poll, and now we are seeing Saintayme and Cruzelles appearing there too. This 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc cuvee from gravel parcels in Lalande de Pomerol has an intensely Burgundian profile. Ripe damsons, strawberries, bright wild berries and spice leap from the glass. The palate has layers of bright, intense fruit; a vital Chenade with plenty of tension and appeal.
