CHATEAU LA CHENADE

Le Chenade is the second wine of Chateau Les Cruzelles. Chateau les Cruzelles was a personal project of the late, great Denis Durantou – best known as the brilliant winemaker at Chateau l’Eglise Clinet in Pomerol. This property is not in Pomerol proper, but slightly further north, in the lesser-known Right Bank appellation of Lalande-de-Pomerol. Denis Durantou was somewhat a 'rockstar' Bordeaux winemaker and has been described as a winemaker's winemaker.

The 11-hectare vineyard lies adjacent to the famous Pomerol plateau, and benefits from the same clay soils. Along with neighbouring La Chenade (on the lower reaches of the same slopes), this estate was driven by Durantou's passion for terroir. Through these estates, he could explore and demonstrate the potential of these impressive sites – which are still remarkably unknown, so offer great value for money. In Robert Parker's Guide to Bordeaux Chateau Les Cruzelles is rated as one of the 'outstanding' Lalande-de-Pomerol chateaux. This 10-hectare estate is under the eye of Denis Durantou, a renowned Bordeaux winemaker from l'Eglise Clinet, whose reputation as 'the man of the soil' couldn't be more of an understatement. The vineyards are planted with 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, with a small production of around 2000 cases per annum.
