6 x 75cl 2014 Pauillac, Château Montgrand-Milon

France, Bordeaux

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.”

Origin

The vineyards are located close to some of the most reputed estates in Bordeaux, including Château Mouton-Rothschild and Château Latour. The vines are over 50 years old, planted on gravel and sandy soils at a density of 10,000 vines per hectare. The vines are double-cordon trellised and planted on gentle slopes, with all harvesting done by hand.

Grape Variety

70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot.

Vinification took place in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks. The wine was then aged for 12-15 months in French oak, 15% of which was new.

The 2014 vintage experienced a moderate but wet winter, followed by early flowering and bud burst during early spring. The beginning of summer was warm but a period of cooler weather with heavy rainfall interrupted the good weather. Conditions then improved, with an Indian summer that dried the vines and fully ripened the grapes, resulting in a good quality vintage.

Château Montgrand Milon is made at Château Fonbadet, which is situated in the north of the small village of Saint-Lambert in Pauillac, close to the banks of the Gironde river. In the Middle Ages, the estate was part of Château Latour, until the current owners, the Peyronnie family, purchased it at the beginning of the 20th century. The vineyards are located near to some of the most reputed estates in Bordeaux, including Château Mouton-Rothschild and Château Latour.
