About

91+

"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."

90 Wine Enthusiast

"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. -RV"
