Tasting Notes

This property is located at the southern end of the Graves region, very close to Barsac and Sauternes. It is one of the oldest in Bordeaux, dating from the fourteenth century. John Statton built the original chateau in 1360 on the site of a Roman villa, while the land was still in English possession. In the 1500s, the property was purchased and run by the powerful Angol-Gascon family of Montferrand. At the time there were 14,000 acres of vineyards and property. This family, for a short while, also owned Chateau Margaux. The Landiras vineyards eventually were neglected and horses were raised on the property. In 1988, Peter Vinding-Diers became only the third owner of the property in 600 years. What he found was two acres of vineyards and 40 more suitable for planting.

    As good as their 2014 was, this is better. Sweeter on the palate with soft tannins and a lingering finish.

    This wine is what I call a classic "petit Bordeaux" in the very best sense of the term. Lots of dark chocolate intermingling with coffee notes first greet you, followed by dark fruit, cassis, and wet rocks - a note that I love in Bordeaux. It has fruit for sure but it is not a fruity wine, in fact the perfectly balanced structure (acid and tannins) hold it all together beautifully.

    Over the course of this year I’ve tasted more exciting Bordeaux than I can remember. Most of these wines are not household names and they tend to be screaming good values. The Chateau de Landiras is a perfect of example. At a mere $15 this wine delivers everything I’d hope for from a quality Bordeaux. On the nose you get roasted coffee notes, cassis, and just an overall sense of pedigree. The wine is totally accessible for early drinking. This is another example of the heights that were reached for value Bordeaux in the soon to be legendary 2015 vintage.
