Château Monlot AOC Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Red - Technical sheet
AOC Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Red
Small estate of 7 hectares owned by Bernard Rivals, a dedicated and fascinating man with a warm, welcoming nature. He tends his vines – average age 31 years – as a gardener tends his garden. Bernard Rivals has been a partner of Maison Sichel for more than thirty years. His rich, generous and silky wines win awards every year in international competitions. The consistently high standards of Château Monlot make it a wine you can depend on.
This 2007 vintage displays fine concentration from start to finish. Superb garnet hue with a hint of orange at rim. The expressive bouquet offers notes of black berried fruits – blackcurrant – and plum, evolving to earthy aromas with mild spice and toasty oak. The palate is supply and chewy, robustly structured with fine, smooth tannins. The overall balance is typical of all the wines of this prestigious appellation.
