Bordeaux legend Denis Durantou purchased Les Cruzelles in 2000. Recognising the fine terroir of Lalande de Pomerol, a commune that often runs the risk of being overlooked, he quickly turned this unknown estate into a top performer. It lies just north of his flagship estate, L’Eglise-Clinet in Pomerol proper, and displays a grace and complexity that echoes its big brother but at a much lower price. In fact, if you know where to look you can see the vines of Les Cruzelles from the vineyards of L’Eglise-Clinet. Crucially, the vineyards share the same clay soils so are perfect for producing fine Merlot, and the vineyard is split 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc. Denis Durantou sadly passed away in 2020 and his wife and daughters have taken over the running of his estates and we are sure will continue to develop the great potential that Denis recognised in Les Cruzelles.
