In the reign of Louis XIII, in 1638, a certain Jean de Moytié, Counsellor of the Bordeaux parliament and a noble bourgeois of the town, owned a beautifully sloped gravelly vineyard near the River. This place, as was the tradition, was named after its owner and thus became the “Mont-Moytié.” Historically, the production of Mont-Moytié was among the first Médoc wines, along with the “Château de Margaux”, the “Tour de Saint-Lambert” or the “Château de La Fitte” in Pauillac and the “Château de Calon”, in Saint-Estèphe, which were all established before the period of civil war known as La Fronde (1648-1653.) These were the first estates to appear in the Médoc parishes, which were later to become commune appellations. Read less

61% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot, 3% cabernet franc, 6% petit verdot. Alcohol of 14%. A massively dark and brooding nose is more reminiscent of the 2010s from Pauillac and gives the wine an initial impression of being a beast. It actually stays ve... Alex Shaw.

This is big with layers of succulent blackberry cassis and linzer torte pushed by sweet spice and a long graphite finish. Shows lots of smoky fleshy power but really sails along. Wine Spectator.

Very concentrated and luscious looking. Exceptionally deep crimson. Very fine and sophisticated on the nose. Both concentration and lift but then perhaps just a bit too concentrated on the palate?
