[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Clos Les Lunelles NEW Cotes de Castillon Unreleased - - - 92-93 - - 88-90
Hide the tasting notes

Refined and pretty with lovely fruit and density. Medium body, a delicious center palate and gorgeous fruit. Fine and fresh.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

The 2016 Clos Lunelles, Gérard and Chantal Perse's Côtes de Castillon, is plump, juicy and forward. Sweet red cherry, raspberry, spice and new French oak are pushed forward. Sumptuous and racy, the 2016 will drink well with minimal cellaring. This is very nicely done.

I like the lift to this wine with stone and mineral character and plenty of blackberries. Medium-bodied, firm and silky. Well done.

Score: 91 - 92 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Dark, rich and chocolatey. Thick and verging on exaggerated right-bank style. Pretty sharp on the end.

Score: 16 Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2021-2029

Frankly toasted, with a roasted vanilla bean frame around a core of lightly steeped plum and blackberry fruit. A little more reliant on toast than freshness, but solid enough.

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Montlandrie Cotes de Castillon Unreleased - - 89-92 92-93 17 89-92 89-91

Rich and ripe with dark plums, red berries and liquorice. Generous fruit layers build to a dry finish.

Score: 89 - 92 Albany Vintners

Very fine and polished with pretty tannins, balance and fruit. Medium-bodied, fresh and clean. All about clarity.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

They bought the first bit of this property in 2008, then another bit in 2009. Same geological profile as Pavie and Tertre Roteboeuf. Now for the first time from the Église-Clinet vines that Durantou planted in 2009 and 2011. 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Picked 3-17 October. 60% new oak. 3,400 cases. 15 ha of vines and the rest will be truffle oaks.Very deep crimson. Intense nose. Sweet start and very dramatic. This should be worth looking out for over the next few vintages. Real improvement this year!

Score: 17 Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2021-2029

Fresh and engaging, with lovely raspberry and plum fruit, backed by a pronounced minerally edge. Shows a slightly firm spine through the spice-tinged finish.

Score: 89 - 92 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The 2016 Montlandrie is powerful and bold to its core. Layers of dense, dark fruit, chocolate, lavender spice and sweet oak saturate the palate. Dense and voluptuous, this racy wine from Denis Durantou is packed and ready to deliver maximum pleasure upon release. Tasted two times.
