Fascinating aromas of white pepper, dark berries, dark chocolate and dried flowers. Medium-bodied, tight and tannic, yet the tannins are fine and angular. Bright acidity. Shows drive and focus. Extremely well done. Better after 2022. Read more

Neal Martin - Vinous

The 2017 Montlandrie was picked from 13 to 28 September. It boasts an utterly charming bouquet with blackberry, raspberry and just a hint of crushed violet. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, dark fruit but fresh and lively, very precise with a welcome dash of black pepper towards the graphite-tinged finish. Denis Durantou described this as one of his favorite wines of 2017 and I can understand why.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider

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.

Cassis and plum notes lead the way here, followed by singed mesquite, tobacco and mineral details. Delivers ripeness and heft as well as good cut and freshness. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2028. 3,583 cases made. — JM

Antonio Galloni MW - Vinous

Denis Durantou's 2017 Montlandrie is bursting at the seams with the essence of blackberry jam, chocolate, cloves, new leather, licorice and menthol. Although not especially subtle, the 2017 packs a serious punch. I would prefer to drink it on the young side, while the fruit remains vibrant.

Jacques Perrin - Vinifera

Entrée en bouche fruitée, précédée par un nez fruité intense et des nuances florales. Finale sur un tanin épicé, assez ferme.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW - Wine Advocate

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Montlandrie rocks up with bold blackberry preserves and plum preserves scents with hints of bay leaves, charcoal and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with black fruit and minerally accents, supported by firm, chewy tannins, finishing a little firm. Drinking Window : 2020 - 2030
