The wine shows lovely black fruit with a creamy, toasty edge on the nose. The palate is soft, multilayered and has a lively intensity with classic plum, blackberry preserve, cherry and an elegant earthy touch on the finish.

Description

CHÂTEAU MONTBRUN, Libourne
This minuscule 2.75-ha property is in the Dubois family since 1900. The vineyard is split in 2 parcels within the Pomerol appellation (sandy soils with gravels) and it is planted with 30-years old Merlot (90%) and Cabernet Franc. The viticulture is lutte raisonnée, Xavier Dubois invested in a brand new ‘cuverie’ in 2007 when he purchased temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The vinification is classic Bordeaux right bank, the fermentation and maceration takes about 25 days in Xavier’s new tanks, the wine is then matured in a mix of French and American oak barrels for 12 months, lightly fined with egg white, it is not filtered.
