jeb dunnuck logo 250"A selection of 100% Merlot aged 16 months in new French oak, the smaller production 2016 Chateau des Landes Cuvée Prestige is a solid step up from the Cuvée Tradition and offers medium to full-bodied richness as well as fabulous notes of crème de cassis, spice, tobacco, and subtle earthy characteristics. It has notable purity and freshness, fine tannins, and shows the style of the vintage beautifully. Drink it any time over the coming decade."

wine enthusiast 90 pts"A powerful, juicy red-fruit-flavored wine, this is dense and concentrated. The tannins are still young and right up front, competing with the black-currant fruits. Wait to drink this rich wine until 2021. - Roger Voss"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2015 Chateau des Landes Cuvée Prestige is cut from the same cloth yet has the vintage’s more sexy, rounded, powerful style front and center. Cassis, licorice, toasted spices, and dried tobacco notes all give way to a medium to full-bodied 2015 that was ripe tannins, wonderful sweetness of fruit, and a great finish. Made from 100% Merlot brought up in new oak, it’s well worth seeking out and is going to keep for 10-12 years easily."

wine enthusiast 91 pts"Ripe and structured, this wood-aged wine is still developing. It has a dark structure, dense blackberry fruit and powerful concentration. A peppery touch of alcohol gives it a bitter finish, which should dissipate as it ages. Drink from 2022. - Roger Voss"

wine enthusiast 90 pts"Big and bold, this is a rich wine with firm tannins that are balanced by dense fruitiness. Spice, a dark texture and concentration hint at the extraction although this does not detract from potential of the fruit. Give this several more years before drinking, certainly don't try it before 2020. - Roger Voss"

wine enthusiast 90 pts"Produced from old vines, this is a new-wood-aged, polished and ripe wine. With its juicy black fruits and dark tannins, it is destined for good aging. Spice and a rich texture are working together to broaden and ripen this wine further. Drink from 2017. - Roger Voss"

"From Château des Landes’ old vines, this is a concentrated, solid wine. Dark tannins have dark chocolate and licorice flavors, with a structure that dominates the fruit and needs to soften. New wood aging was perhaps excessive, but give the wine time. Drink from 2017. - Roger Voss"
