This wine is produced by the Durantou family of Château L'Eglise Clinet in Pomerol. The fruit is sourced from a section of the Les Cruzelles vineyard with gravel soil and younger vines. 100% Merlot.

The 2023 La Chenade is pure Merlot. Last year contained 20% Cabernet Franc, but this year, Noëmie Durantou blended it into the Les Cruzelles cuvée. The palate is medium-bodied with a lovely texture and a keen line of acidity, lightly spiced with gentle grip on the slightly savoury finish. Very satisfying in the mouth, this is a sensual La Chenade that will provide for delicious early drinking.
89-91 Neal Martin.

La Chenade has depth and layering with lots going on. Crunchy blackberry and raspberry fruit character and round tannins. 100% merlot. Better than 2022.
93-94 James Suckling.

The 2023 La Chenade, 100% Merlot this year, opens with gorgeous aromatics. Medium in body and vibrant, with terrific energy, the 2023 is all class. Cedar, tobacco and dried herbs add an attractive savoury/floral character, while bright acids that pull it all together on the close. This is beautifully done. 2028-2038.
90-92 Antonio Galloni.

Bright vivid colour; raspberry fruits on the first attack, shot through with grilled cedar, salted caramel, liquorice and gentle acidities, unfussy and enjoyable.
90 Jane Anson.
