2021 Château Montlandrie  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 91
Crushed rocks, flowers, cocoa and ripe, dark plums create the perfume.

The wine blends 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% ABV. The harvest took place October 4 - October 7. Drink from 2023-2035. 90-92

2019 Château Montlandrie  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 92
Chocolate, licorice, forest leaf, flowers and plum nuances are all over the place in the nose and in the medium-bodied, silky, vibrant palate. The energetic finish expresses earthy red pit fruits and chocolate notes that linger. Drink from 2022-2035.

One cannot help but notice the ripe, juicy plums on the nose. The chocolate, truffle and licorice notes that come next are the perfect nuance. Round, opulent and juicy, this wine is fresh, long and mouth-filling, ending with layers of fresh fruits. 91-93 Pts

2018 Château Montlandrie  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 93
This is showing much better in bottle than in barrel. Now, you find more intensity, richness and complexity. The nose opens with flowers, licorice, wet earth, cherry and plum tones. Silky, rich and fresh, with layers of elegant, ripe, sweet fruits in the endnote, this is the best vintage of Montlandrie I have ever tasted! The wine is a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Floral in nature, the wine focuses on its freshness, silky tannins and red, licorice coated fruits. The medium-bodied wine is going to need a few years to soften and come together. The wine is a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. 90-92 Pts

2017 Château Montlandrie  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 91
A deep shimmery ruby, the wine has sweetness and flesh. The red fruits are highlighted with licorice and cocoa. If you like ‘em young, Rubenesque with primary fruits and a little sugar on top, you may drink this upon release. The wine is a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

2016 Château Montlandrie  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 90
It is hard to find a better value Bordeaux than this. The wine is soft, forward, earthy, fresh and fruity, with lush textures and loads of sweet, ripe, lifted fruits in the finish. This is drinking great today and should remain at this level for at least 7-10 years.

2015 Château Montlandrie  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 91
Black cherry liqueur, licorice and spice sensations pair perfectly with the plush, round, lush-textured and long, fruit-filled finish. This wine has real character. I would not be surprised to see this get better in the bottle. A blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine reached 14.7% alcohol with a pH of 3.62.

2014 Château Montlandrie  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 90
95% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon produced a wine with a deep color coupled with floral, boysenberry and cocoa sensations. Lush, fat and sweet, this is only the second vintage for Denis Durantou in the Cotes de Castillon, yet, it’ s easy to get what he’s aiming for, with its plush, rich textures and ripe, sweet fruits. 90-91

2009 Château Montlandrie  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 90
With an inviting nose of licorice, dark cocoa, black cherry liqueur and floral notes, this round, plush, forward wine is already delicious and will get even better with a few more years of age. The debut vintage for Chateau Montlandrie was produced from a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. This is a great example of a Bordeaux value wine.
