Grape Varieties: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon , 15% Merlot
Region: Pauillac, Bordeaux
Closure: Natural Cork
From over 50 year-old vines, Château Montgrand-Milon is a rare example of an approachable and affordable Pauillac. The wine is well-balanced with silky tannins, great concentration and a lifted finish.
The nose boasts bright aromas of blackberries with hints of cinnamon and clove from the oak. The palate is well balanced, with silky tannins, fresh acidity, concentrated fruit and a lifted finish. It is rare to find a Pauillac like this that is both affordable and approachable.
Spring was milder than usual, with a warm April and a brief heatwave striking early May, which prompted a successful flowering. Rain fell after flowering, providing welcome relief for the vines. Temperatures continued to rise, during the summer months. From what had been one of the driest summers in recent history, August then proved to be one of the wettest. Red wine grapes typically take longer to ripen and the warm September days and cool nights helped the ripening grapes maintain their freshness. Overall, the 2015 is a fantastic vintage.
