The wine is aged for 12 months, partly in concrete tanks and oak barrels before being carefully blended.
A higher proportion spends time in concrete tanks which brings fruit and freshness to the wine, while
the aging in barrels brings more complex and silky tannins.
The 2012 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 is an absolute joy. Parker 91-93 Points
