Chateau Montus XL
Francois' French Opinion:
This is the most recent release of this amazing wine. Pure Tannat. Aged for 40 months in new wood, it took its time to become so beautifully drinkable. It is, of course, dense with typical dusty Tannat tannins and with mature secondary flavors of dried fruit, spices and intense acidity. A rich and deep wine with complexity and concentration. Soft tannins and perfect balance, with an elegant body and fresh finish. It is ready to be drank now.
Pair with: Red meats, game, chocolate and fruit desserts
