Notes

2019 turned out to be Denis Durantou’s swansong. He was a remarkably talented man, who always captured the vintage and at times mastered it. His 2013s are a case in point – few vignerons could reach those heights in such a drab year. His 2019s will be his last creations, his farewell gifts to the world. These are generous, beautifully textured wines, full of energy and vim. Produced from exactly the same blend as La Chenade, 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, however, this is stylistically very different. The bouquet is a heady mix of black fruit and minerals. It’s quite intoxicating, there’s a flamboyant melting pot of ferrous minerals, molten graphite, chocolate box and gravelly, smoky cassis. On the palate, the fruit is pure, refined and beautifully textured. As ever, this punches well above its weight. The core is powerful and broad, there’s lots of material here and it’s all expertly wrapped in fruit-soaked tannins that give direction and focus. An excellent Cruzelles.
