Montagne Saint-Emilion, Château Montaiguillon, Bordeaux, France 2018
Regular price £19.75
Château Montaiguillon is a family-run property of twenty-eight hectares, and has since 1949 been in the hands of the Amart family; third generation Chantal Amart is currently in charge. The vineyard is a single plot that borders both Saint-Emilion and Pomerol. Soil is clay-limestone and the exposure is to the south, so the vines get more sun than many of the flatter surrounding vineyards. Vines are an average of forty years old.
Montagne Saint-Emilion 2018
An expressive nose of roasted plums, dried herbs and fresh earthy notes leads to a medium-full, currant-infused palate of both breadth and focus.
