If you have not yet read about the genius of Pomerol winemaker Denis Durantou, you will can read more about him on our offer of Saintayme here. 

The first vintage since his death last year, the 2020 wines continue in the same spirit as before.  We found exquisite, delicate fruit in La Chenade (at £160 per dozen, which is effectively a second wine to Les Cruzelles.  "Sit back and enjoy...." as Jane Anson says of it (91 points).

Producer Profile

La Chenade, Lalande de Pomerol

La Chenade is effectively the second wine of Château Les Cruzelles, an estate in Lalande de Pomerol which was bought in 2000 by the late Denis Durantou, owner of L'Eglise Clinet in Pomerol.  He bought the 10.5-hectare vineyard having noticed the similarity with the terroir at L'Eglise Clinet, which is only 1km away.

Durantou passed away in 2020 and the wines are now made by his daughters. The fruit for Les Cruzelles is grown on soils with a higher clay content than La Chenade, with slightly more Merlot in the blend, giving darker, more intense wines.
