"This is really delicious and fresh with lovely dark berries and purity at the same time. Medium body, fine tannins and a lovely finish." JamesSuckling.com

"This is produced by Denis Durantou of Château L’Eglise Clinet. The vineyard is in Lalande de Pomerol on gravel-based sandy soils. The 2018 La Chenade is composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc with 30% new oak. Deep purple-black in color, the nose is slightly reticent and broody, offering notes of tar, chargrill and damp soil to begin, giving way to a core of fresh plums, black cherries and kirsch plus touches of bay leaves and iron ore. Medium-bodied, the palate is fresh and juicy with plenty of bright black fruit and a plush texture, finishing long and refreshing." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2018 La Chenade comes from gravel soils and was picked September 17-25 for the Merlot, September 25 for the Cabernet Franc, then matured in 30% new oak. It has a perfumed blueberry and black currant bouquet; touches of violet petals and orange peel come through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins. There is a nice bite to Denis Durantou’s Lalande-de-Pomerol, and an attractive saline finish. Excellent." Neal Martin, Vinous.com
