|2018||Château Montviel (Pomerol)|
Plummy and floral, the wine is sophistication and freshness. 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)|
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. Drinking it, I found myself thinking of Catherine Pere Verge who passed away earlier this year. The grand dame of Pomerol is definitely missed.
