'Anne-Marie and Jean-Guy Todeschini started a revolution here and at Château Mangot and sons Karl and Yann (mid-Millennials) are moving it on. They use Jean-Pierre Cousinié's terroir analysis (look it up), no pesticides, experiment with no sulfur and are changing the way their terroir talks to the wine. This vintage is a rich wine with attractive black currant fruit and fine acidity. With structured tannins and light spice, it is fruity, juicy and will be ready to drink from 2018.' – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 90/100

'The 2014 La Brande is very nicely done. Bold and juicy in the glass, with good underlying structure, it offers plenty of fruit intensity in a ripe, racy style that will drink well early. Dark red and purplish stone fruits and expressive spice notes infuse this powerful Côtes de Castillon.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 88/100

'The 2014 La Brande has an upfront red cherry and raspberry scented bouquet that is showy and generous. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a little chewiness on the entry, good weight if missing some refinement and finesse on the blocky finish. Give this a year or two in bottle.' – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 87/100
