Chateau Montgrand-Milon 2015 Pauillac

$ 54.99

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. It has ripe layers of black-currant-flavored Cabernet Sauvignon, along with those firm, handsome tannins. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec find their way into this blend in smaller proportions. A powerful wine which can be laid out or decanted. The polished character comes from the wood aging that also brings in spice and toast. But it's the fruit that shines here, ripe, balanced and sure to see the wine age well. Intense ruby color. Fresh fruity nose, with a fancy oak barrel toasting. Rich and well-balanced, with present and vivid tannins.
