Black cherry liqueur, liquorice and spiced notes pair seamlessly with the lush, round, well-textured and long, fruit-filled finish. This wine has real character and will age beautifully in bottle.
94 Points, James Suckling: “Flowers, black liquorice, 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.”
92 Points, Neal Martin: “The 2015 Montlandrie was precocious out of barrel but now it has learned some manners and blossomed into a more refined and sophisticated Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux, the 45% new oak beautifully assimilated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, perfectly pitched acidity, a little savoury and dried blood surfacing toward the finish to complete a glorious wine that fulfils its promise from barrel. I suspect this will be longer lasting than many will allow it. Anticipated maturity: 2019 – 2035.”
