Flowers, cherries, and licorice form the core of the wine. Medium-bodied, crisp, and almost crunchy, with its citrus accents blended with sweet, and tart red fruits. The finish is slightly drying, so give it time to soften. Drink from 2027-2037. 89-91 Pts.

Rich, lush, creamy, concentrated, opulent wine with layers of dark, chocolate-coated plums, and black cherries on the palate. The wine finishes with supple, deep, dark, polished fruits, cocoa, espresso, spice, and licorice in the finish. This is a property that has been on the upswing over the past few vintages. Drink from 2025-2040. 92-94 Pts.

Flowers, cherries and licorice shoot from the glass in the perfume. The palate is soft, round and fruity with sweetness to the black cherries and plums from the mid-palate, through to the endnotes of the finish. I like the softness on the palate and the right touch of cocoa that comes through on the backend. Drink from 2024-2037.

Quite floral in nature, the wine is forward, soft, and polished, with layers of sweet, ripe, lusciously-textured, cocoa, plums, espresso, licorice, spice, and charred coffee beans in the finish. This is a property that has been on the upswing over the past few vintages. Drink from 2023-2038.

Licorice, flowers, espresso, smoke, mint and plums create the nose. On the palate the wine is soft, silky and vibrant, with layers of sweet, ripe, juicy plums, crushed stone and spice. This is a property that has been on the upswing over the past few vintages. I am sure they will keep up the good work. 91-93 Pts

Dark cherries and licorice permeate the wines aromatics. On the palate, here you find silky textured, sweet, lush, ripe red fruits with freshness, energy and soft, polished tannins. Give it a few years in the cellar and it will be even better.

Deep in color, the wine pops with licorice, flowers, espresso and black raspberries. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied, soft, silky and polished. The fruit is ripe, fresh and carries its sweet cherry essence like a prize for the finish. Give it a few years in the cellar and it will be even better. 91-93 Pts

With good color the wine is soft, polished, fresh and lively. The fruit has sweetness, energy and a nice sense of purity. Round, elegant, fleshy and already easy to drink, this is quite nice. Chateau Monlot made its debut in 2012. The wine was made from a blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc.
