Chateau Plaisance Montagne Saint-Emilion

£17.95

This is a typical right-bank Bordeaux blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is powerful, yet silky. It has supple tannins that seamlessly integrate into the wine, resulting in a very smooth and well-structured drop. The wine spent 12 months ageing in new oak barrels, and has since had nearly seven years ageing in the bottle. The time in the bottle has resulted in the wine starting to take on nice hints of tobacco and leather, however it’s held it’s ripe fruit character, so expect notes of raspberries and blackberry.

Montagne Saint-Emilion is what they call a satellite appellation of Saint-Emilion. The village of Montagne sits about five kilometres north of the town of Saint-Emilion, so it sits in the realm of Saint-Emilion but is technically it’s own appellation. Got that?
