wine enthusiast 88 pts"This smoky, fruity wine shows obvious wood aging but also plenty of black fruits. Spice, tannins and final acidity add to the mix. Give them time to all come together and drink from 2020. - Roger Voss"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Based on 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc, brought up in tank, the 2016 Chateau des Landes Cuvée Tradition has a medium-bodied, nicely concentrated style to go with classic chocolaty red and black fruits, licorice, and spicy overtones. It’s well-made, has plenty of fruit, and a delicious character ideal for drinking over the coming 7-8 years.."

jeb dunnuck logo 250"More spice, sandalwood, licorice, and assorted chocolaty fruits emerge from the 2015 Chateau des Landes Cuvée Tradition, which offers more richness and breadth than the 2016. Medium to full-bodied, fruit-loaded, and incredibly satisfying, especially at the price, it’s a terrific wine geared for drinking over the coming 6-8 years. As with the 2016, the blend is 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc."

wine enthusiast 87 pts"Dominated by 80% Merlot, this ripe and firm wine is full of red berry fruits with a solid, dry core that comes from the fruit tannins. The tannins are still young, still solid, so the wine even with its fruitiness needs to age. Drink from 2016. - RV"

wine enthusiast 91 pts"Powered by considerable tannins, this Merlot-based wine is firm and concentrated. Its fruit shows intense black plum skin and berry flavors that push through the dark structure. It's a rich wine that needs time. Drink from 2018. — R.V."
