The Chateau Durand-Leplagne "Grande Selection" is a wine of the Appellation Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion. Created in 1986, it was born from the desire to develop a wine in the pure tradition of Saint-Emilion, but also to fully showcase the qualities of the terroir of the estate.
Only the highest quality parcels in the vineyard are selected to create this wine, which is aged in oak barrels for 12 months before being bottled at the property.
Blend: 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
The Wine Advocate
The 2015 Durand Laplagne has an attractive undergrowth tinged bouquet with blackberry and wild hedgerow scents. The palate is well balanced with crisp tannin, good fruit concentration with a firm structure, fresh and perhaps a little masculine. This is an excellent Puisseguin Saint Emilion with heaps of personality and it's going to be a joy once in bottle. Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points
