The 2015 Chateau Monbrison wine has a perfumed bouquet with generous red cherry, wild strawberry and rose petal scents that are neatly folded into the new oak. This Margaux wine is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, fresh fruit here with a lively and vivacious, quite fleshy finish that belies that fine tannin underneath. The 2015 Chateau Monbrison is a delicious Margaux wine.
The 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.
