Tasting notes: Quite expressive nose, focused on notes of tobacco and spices. The body offers good density with quite a fleshy tannin and an expressive fruity finish.
About the winery: Chateau Monbrison is a Bordeaux wine producer located in Margaux, known for its Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant grand vin. The first vineyards at the estate were planted in the 17th century when the land was still part of the neighbouring Medoc estate, Chateau d'Arsac. In 1749 the estate became independent, trading hands from the influential Segur family to the Copmartin family. Today the estate is owned by descendants of the Davis family who have continued to manage and modernize the chateau since 1921.
