At tasting, the wine shows an interesting red colour. On the nose, the wine has a great complexity with its scents of orange peel, toasted oak and a hint of minerality. On the palate, the Château Montlandrie 2011 appears to be quite lively in its balance. It presents a dense structure, which is a classical marker of a wine from clay soil and relief. It reveals fresh fruit and cherry stone flavours. This wine offers a great length in its aromas. It requires 2 to 3 hours of aeration.
