2015 CHÂTEAU MONTLABERT SAINT-EMILION GRAND CRU
From James Suckling, “Very attractive dark-spiced plums and blueberries with impressive earthy nuances. Smells suave and possesses plenty of charm. The palate has a smoky thread framed in attractive, chiseled tannins that carry plush, fresh fruit. Great wine. Try from 2022.” JAMES SUCKLING 95 POINTS
Ed’s Notes: “I humbly have a lot to learn about French Wine, and what I’m learning about Bordeaux is that it’s all about vintage and Your Neighbors… Château Montlabert lies on the Route de Libourne, and shares the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation with a number of its prestigious neighbors: Château Cheval Blanc and Château Figeac are just a stone’s throw away… you don’t usually find wines from this region below $100 mark. I highly recommend a case to get to know this beautiful world-class region…. with the High Score from Suckling, and below $50, you can’t go wrong. This is the very top of the best red wine under 100 category.”
