This stunning 95 Point red from Chateau Montlabert’s Saint Emilion Grand Cru terroir is a show-stopping example of why, yes, you do love Merlot. Made by Chateau Angelus’ Hubert de Bouard, a Saint Emilion, Right Bank mega star, this wine is much brawnier than the price would indicate, with bold briery fruit, smoky herbs and untamed rusticity. We dare you to even try to share this bottle once opened.
Very attractive dark-spiced plums and blueberries with impressive earthy nuances. Smells suave and possesses plenty of charm. The palate has a smoky thread framed in attractive, chiseled tannins that carry plush, fresh fruit. Great wine. Try from 2022.
