It is hard to find a better value Bordeaux than this. The wine is soft, forward, earthy, fresh and fruity, with lush textures and loads of sweet, ripe, lifted fruits in the finish. This is drinking great today and should remain at this level for at least 7-10 years.

With an inviting nose of licorice, dark cocoa, black cherry liqueur and floral notes, this round, plush, forward wine is already delicious and will get even better with a few more years of age. The debut vintage for Chateau Montlandrie was produced from a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. This is a great example of a Bordeaux value wine.
