2013 Chateau Mongravey Margaux
Details from the Winery
This 13 hectare Estate created in 1981 is established in Arsac in the heart of the Margaux Appellation. The entire vineyard is made of several plots of vines on a gravely soil from the Garonne area and dating from the quaternary period. It is a blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon, 38% merlot and 2% cabernet franc. Cru Bourgeois since the 2003 classification, the vines from Chateau Mongravey are located amongst the prestigious 1855 Grands Clus Classés of the Margaux appellation. Chateau Mongravey produces delicate wines typical of the Margaux appellation; that will perfectly accompany the most subtle cuisine. The tasting of Chateau Mongravey will offer you pure moments of happiness and emotion bringing to your table elegance and prestige.
The cabernet sauvignon prevails and brings finesse and elegance, emphasized by the roundness of the merlot. The red berries aromas and a hint of liquorice, the so typical length from our terroir make of this wine the ideal companion to grilled meat and roasted poultry.
