"Bordeaux vintner Denis Durantou, owner of Château L'Église Clinet in Pomerol, has passed away at age 62 after a long illness. Durantou was a well-known figure in the area, and one of a handful of winery owners who lived in Pomerol full-time. He was known for his attention to detail in the vineyards and cellars and his sharp insights on Bordeaux in general. In addition to the high-end L'Église Clinet, Durantou produced several value priced wines from other Bordeaux areas…Durantou increased his holdings by acquiring the 44-acre Château Montlandrie in Côtes de Bordeaux, Castillon, in 2009. His daughters intend to run the winery estates with the winemaking team headed by Olivier Gautrat, who has worked for the Durantou family for the past 20 years."
– Suzanne Mustacich, Wine Spectator, May 2020


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.

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.
