In 2008, Denis Durantou acquired this Château for which he fell in love at first sight. A splendid 12 hectare clay-limestone vineyard on the first line of the Dordogne hillside, Montlandrie is in Castillon (which it directly overlooks) the equivalent of Ausone in Saint-Émilion.
As in his other properties (L'Église-Clinet, Les Cruzelles, La Chenade...), Denis Durantou used all his know-how and perfectionism to produce a fresh and floral wine, with a crisp and juicy fruitiness. Few Bordeaux wines are as deserving of the term "vibrant wine" as Montlandrie.
Bettane & Desseauve : 93-94/100 « On aime ce 2020 pour son volume parfait, remarquable d’intensité et de volupté. Grand raffinement de texture, puissance domptée, soyeux de tannin remarquable »

Dupont (Le Point) :
Galloni (Vinous) :
Martin (Vinous) : 88-90/100 « The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, sweet and sensual, although I find less complexity on the finish compared directly with its siblings, La Chenade and Les Cruzelles. Still, this will give several years of drinking pleasure. »
