92-94 THE WINEADVOCATE: "Produced by Denis Durantou of Château L’Eglise Clinet, the 2018 Montlandrie is a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon with 14.5% alcohol and is currently aging in 40% new oak. Deep purple-black in color, it features fragrant notes of lilacs, Morello cherries and blueberry compote over a core of plum preserves and woodsmoke plus a waft of underbrush. The medium to full-bodied palate is richly fruited with black and blue fruits, lifted by earthy accents and lovely freshness, finishing long and velvety textured."
17,5 WEINWISSER: "Tiefes Purpurrot. Ein dichtes blaubeeriges Bouquet mit viel Würze, dunkle Edelhölzer, Brasiltabak und schwarzer Johannisbeere. Am stoffigen Gaumen eine sehr verlangendes Tanningerüst, eng mit Muskeln umspannter Körper. Im gebündelten Finale getrocknete schwarze Beeren und dunkle Mineralik."
92 DECANTER: "This is very good quality and has beautiful complexity right off the bat - Denis Durantou´s Castillon estate is pretty much always one of my value picks, although the price is rising. This takes its time, there’s a touch of reduction that clears in the glass before the layers of juicy brambly fruits come to the fore ending with a fairly delicate finish. Although the power is clearly there, he keeps a clever nuance in the flavours. 40% new oak was used."
92-93 JAMES SUCKLING: "This shows a really beautiful core of ripe fruit with dark chocolate and blueberries. Full body and firm, chewy tannins. Flavorful finish."
90-92 THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "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."
91-93 JEB DUNNUCK: "Impressive notes of cassis, graphite, crushed rocks, and floral characteristics all dominate the 2018 Château Montlandrie, which is 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon being brought up in 40% new barrels. It´s balanced and has classic limestone influenced minerality and structure followed by a beautiful finish. This terrific Castillon is well worth seeking out, and I suspect it will evolve nicely for 10-15 years."
