Medium-bodied and jam-packed with sweet black raspberries and licorice accents, the ripe, earthy plum and cherry fruits transport silkiness to the palate and into the finish. The wine is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. This is a serious value for the Pomerol region in 2018. Savvy shoppers should be all over this. 90-92 Pts

2009 Château Montviel  (Pomerol) 90

This blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc has really improved since my last taste. Packed with aromas of licorice, flowers, plum and chocolate, the wine is supple, already open and delivers an elegant, supple finish.
