The most exceptional wines of Saint Émilion stand out for supple textures, rounded mouthfeel, stunning fruit, and sensually intense flavors, and Chateau Montlabert’s 97 Point Saint Emilion Grand Cru is a remarkable example. Chateau Montlabert is a typical blend of Merlot (82%) complemented with Cabernet Franc (18%) grown in their unique vineyard terroir composed of siliceous clay with veins of the same, famous blue clay present in Chateau Petrus’ vineyards.

Influenced by a dry June through September, Saint-Emilion’s 2016 vintage was outstanding; The region’s cherished clay soils with excellent water retention allowed the vines low hydric stress throughout veraison with enough to concentrate and ripen the fruit for an exceptional vintage!

Description

2016 CHÂTEAU MONTLABERT SAINT-EMILION GRAND CRU

“Clean, intense fruit concentration with a layer of sweet spicy oak, chocolate and cinnamon. Firm tannic grip holds together the palate with blackberry, smoke and pencil lead notes.”
97 Points
“The iodine and dark-fruit aromas are very enticing. Medium to full body that builds on the palate with chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Lots of ripe tannins at the end. Needs four to five years to soften…”
94 Points
“Ripe and juicy, this is a delicious wine. With its bold black fruits and balanced structure, it has all the makings of a ripe and generous yet crisp wine. There is a strong black-currant element here, while the wine finishes with a great lift of juicy acidity.”
