2011 Château Montaiguillon, Montagne-St-Emilion
Chantal Amart does an amazing job at this perennial favourite, running Montaiguillon like a cru classe with strict selection, including a second wine, this is one of the finest terroirs in Montagne-St-Emilion, it flies in the face of those who suggest there is no value to be found in Bordeaux. The 2011 is appealing and complex with floral notes and earthy, crushed bramble fruit the tannins are fine, ripe and firm. A (badly stored) magnum of 2001 drank beautifully at a recent lunch!
