Chateau Montviel Pomerol 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pomerol|
A broad-shouldered version, offering a hefty dose of warm ganache and tobacco coating the core of warmed fig, blackberry and black currant paste flavors. Long, with loam and smoldering tar notes driving the finish. Not shy on muscle. Best from 2023 through 2032. 1,833 cases made.
Showing similar from barrel, the 2015 Chateau Montviel is another sexy, forward Pomerol offering terrific notes of chocolaty dark fruits, dried flowers and Asian spice-like aromas and flavors. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, it reveals medium to full-bodied richness, moderate acidity, sweet tannin, and a charming, undeniably sumptuous personality that will keep for 10-15 years.
