Hide the tasting notes

The 2022 La Chenade is a bold, juicy Lalande de Pomerol. Succulent dark cherry, plum, lavender, licorice and menthol are nicely pushed forward. Soft and open-knit, with terrific fruit purity, the 2022 is exceptionally beautiful and delicious, even in the early going.

Score: 90 - 92 Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com Maturity: 2025-2037

A focused and polished red with berry, chocolate and walnut character. Medium body. Focused center palate and a fresh finish. Coffee-bean and ripe-seed character. Vivid.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com

The 2022 La Chenade reveals sweet aromas of cherries, berries, licorice and rose petals, followed by a medium to full-bodied, supple and seamless palate. This suave, charming, fruit-driven Lalande-de-Pomerol is more vibrant than its Saint-Emilion counterpart this year.

Score: 89 - 91 William Kelley, Wine Advocate, RobertParker.com

A real sign of the vintage to see how the Durantou wines performed in Lalande in the heat of 2022 and here we have fully ripe blackcurrant and black cherry fruits, sweet and highly spiced, careful extraction as you would expect, annd this is good quality, but for me the mark of the vintage are the clove notes on the finish. 30% new oak. Sandy-gravel soils, 28hl/h yield. Harvest dates September 1 to 9.

Score: 91 Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux Maturity: 2024-2030

The 2022 La Chenade was picked between 1 and 9 September and raised in 30% new oak. This has a perfumed and floral bouquet, with iris and peony infusing the black and red fruit and a light marine influence in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins, good depth, white pepper and clove filtering through the earthy fruit on the finish. So much character and personality in this Lalande-de-Pomerol.

Score: 90 - 92 Neal Martin, Vinous.com Maturity: 2028-2045

The 2022 Château La Chenade is a step up over the Saintayme at this point and should be terrific. Black cherries, mulberries, chocolate, and spicy, floral notes all emerge from the glass, and it's medium-bodied, with beautiful tannins and outstanding length.

[Add to shopping basket] Les Cruzelles Lalande de Pomerol £119 6x75cl 92-94 93-94 90-92 93 92-94 92-94
Hide the tasting notes

The 2022 Les Cruzelles is a wine of notable breadth and texture. Older vines and clay-rich soils yield a Lalande de Pomerol that offers notable resonance. Dark-toned fruit, leather, tobacco, incense, licorice and lavender infuse the 2022 with considerable nuance to match its virile, rather somber feel.

Score: 92 - 94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com Maturity: 2025-2037

A solid red with blackberry, chocolate, walnut and hazelnut. Medium to full body. Smily face here, thanks to the ripe seeds.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com

More serious and structured than La Chenade, the 2022 Les Cruzelles unwinds in the glass with aromas of cherries and blackberries mingled with hints of licorice and mint. Medium to full-bodied, lively and layered, it's built around powdery structuring tannins that gently assert themselves on the finish.

Score: 90 - 92 William Kelley, Wine Advocate, RobertParker.com

More clay in the soils here and there is a lovely balance, fleshy in texture and high impact, but with a ton of interest, dark deep chocolate, gunsmoke, aniseed, fennel, black cherry, lovely fresh acidities. Harvest September 1 to 12, 28hl/h, 50% new oak, Noemie Durantou winemaker.

Score: 93 Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

The 2022 Les Cruzelles was picked between 1 and 12 September and matured in 50% new oak. This has plenty of fruité on the nose: small red cherries, redcurrant and wild strawberry fruit, a touch of cedar in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with wonderful definition and mineralité, dark fruit, hints of black tea and spices, really harmonious and sappy on the finish. Possibly the best Les Cruzelles that I have tasted at this stage and sure to be an unbeatable value-for-money.

Score: 92 - 94 Neal Martin, Vinous.com Maturity: 2028-2050

Another gorgeous Lalande de Pomerol, the 2022 Château Les Cruzelles is deep ruby/purple and boasts a great nose of ripe darker cherries, cassis, graphite, and flowers. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, it's medium-bodied, stays lively and elegant, and has silky tannins as well as a great finish. It's going to be a hidden gem in the vintage that readers will love to have in the cellar.
