Château-Monbrison Margaux 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Margaux|
Wine EnthusiastDusty tannins and ripe fruit give this wine a fine potential. Its structure is impressive with a good mix of rich black currant fruits and acidity to speed development. Drink from 2025.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Monbrison has a perfumed bouquet with generous red cherry, wild strawberry and rose petal scents that are neatly folded into the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, sorbet-fresh fruit here with a lively and vivacious, quite fleshy finish that belies that fine tannin underneath. What a delicious Margaux to enjoy over 15-20 years, one that should be approachable not long after bottling.
Wine SpectatorFleshy and rounded, with an open feel to the warmed plum and blackberry fruit, lined with enticing vanilla and violet hints. The easy finish glides right on through. Drink now through 2027. 3,500 cases made.
