Chateau Monbrison

A cru bourgeois Margaux property located in the commune of Arsac. It was bought by an American, Robert Davis in 1921 and after the war was run by his daughter Elizabeth. It is now run by her son Laurent Vonderheyden.

There are 13.2 hectares of vineyards located in one single plot and planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (30%), Cabernet Franc (15%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The grapes are hand-harvested and then fermented in a combination of concrete, enamel-lined steel, and stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in oak barriques (40-65% new, depending on the vintage) for 18 months. It is bottled unfiltered.

These are classic Margaux clarets, which are seductive and perfumed on the nose and display a firm but supple structure with excellent depth of fruit on the palate. In any reassessment of the 1855 Classification, this would be a definite candidate for promotion.
