Tasting Notes

The 2015 La Chenade, which was so impressive from barrel, has retained that gorgeous, pure bouquet that is floral in style, still with that candied tincture. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent red berry fruit, touches of Early Grey and a sweet, candied finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. Just plain delicious.

Score: 90

Denis Durantou's 2015 La Chenade is just as delicious from bottle as it was from barrel. The 20% Cabernet Franc gives the flavors lift and nuance to play off the bright red berry fruit. Hints of tobacco, mint, crushed flowers, licorice and spices add lovely shades of nuance. I very much like the energy and overall tension here.

Score: 90

Better known for his prestigious Pomerol Eglise Clinet, Denis Durantou's Lalande de Pomerols are widely recognised as offering fantastic value for money. La Chenade is 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc made from gravel soils. A light pretty nose of ripe strawberries, blueberries and damsons and violets. Good intensity of fruit in the mouth followed by cocoa and vanilla notes on the finish. Creamy tannins that are nicely integrated.

Score: 90 - 92
