2016 was an amazing vintage here. This is such an impressive wine. We've always admired the family's work at this small estate, perched on the hill looking across to the 'Big boys' of Cheval Blanc and Chateau Petrus. Their efforts, this super terroir and the great vintage have come together gloriously in 2016. This polished, deep-fruited wine is extra-ordinary value. Deeply attractive already it is hard to resist now. Yet for the patient this has a decade of joy to give. Smart, classically shaped claret that will please amateurs and aficionados in equal measure.

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Very deep purple in colour, with enveloping aromas of damson, plums and blackberry, with a touch of clove. Spicy, dark fruits on the palate with lively acidity and slightly firm tannins. This is a fresh, lively, bright, juicy example of why St-Emilion satellites merit consideration. Relatively early-drinking. Drinking range: 2020 - 2024Decanter Magazine(Jun 2020)

Château Montaiguillon

A well regarded 28ha property on the borders of St Georges-St Emilion owned by the Amart family since 1949 and run for the last 20 years by the charming Chantal. Michel Rolland advises.

A recent visit reminded us of the immense quality of the work she is doing here at this well placed family estate. As we stood in front of the winery looking out over her neighbours like Cheval Blanc, VCC and Chateau Petrus who are just over the Barbanne stream, it really brought home the outstanding position of her vineyards and when you taste this Merlot heavy Claret the quality is clear.

Tasting against far greater names this is a exceptional value - elegant, with a lovely weight of fruit - but high toned and very true - this hits all the high notes. A sadly all too rare bargain for this part of the world - this will not disappoint.

Vineyards are planted to 60% Merlot with 20% each of Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon.
