2015 Montlandrie - "Superb", "Glorious", "Stellar", "Regal"

As a customer of Farr Vintners you'll need no introduction to the wines of Denis Durantou, whose Château L’Eglise Clinet is one of the greatest wines of Pomerol and indeed of all Bordeaux. His Lalande Pomerols – La Chenade and Les Cruzelles - are extremely popular and are sold out in every mature vintage.

The latest addition to the Durantou family is Château Montlandrie. The first vintage here was 2009 but the real breakthrough year, in terms of quality, was 2015. It was then that the wine started to receive rave reviews from the critics and scores that you would normally associate with wines that sell at far higher prices than this. It performed extremely well at the 2015 Southwold blind tasting, with Neal Martin describing it as a glorious wine that fulfills its promise from barrel. Superb.”

A quick glance of the tasting notes from three internationally renowned critics, shown below, will whet your appetite for this bargain Bordeaux. Our own Master of Wine, Thomas Parker, has recorded a video tasting note which can be viewed here.

As we are all working remotely, we'd be grateful if you could place your order online or by email, rather than by telephone.

“The 2015 Montlandrie, matured in 45% new oak, has a very succinct and cohesive bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, briary and light espresso scents. The wood is beautifully assimilated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, perfectly pitched acidity, a little savory and dried blood surfacing toward the finish to complete a glorious wine that fulfills its promise from barrel. Superb. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting."

“The 2015 Montlandrie is another stellar wine from Denis Durantou. Dark, sumptuous and alluring, the 2015 is going to be virtually impossible to resist in its youth. The blackberry jam, graphite, savory herb, lavender, licorice and crushed rock flavors are remarkably rich and vivid in the glass. As good as the 2015 is today, it also has tons of underlying tannin that is going to need a bit of time to resolve itself. The blend is 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. 2021 - 2030"

“Flowers, black licorice, blackberries and minerals all rise to the surface. Transparent. Medium to full bodied, polished and ultra-fine. This is a wine guided for a long time by the owner of Pomerol’s l’Eglise Clinet. Regal. Drink now or hold.”
