Château Michel de Montaigne Bergerac Rouge 2008

External Review by WineExpress.com:

This Chateau is owned by Frank Mahler-Besse, owner of Chateau Palmer in Margaux and many other first class wine making properties in Bordeaux and around the world. In 1964 his great-great grandmother rebuilt this historic Bergerac property which lies less than six miles from the village of St. Emilion. The terrior is identical to right bank Bordeaux and so the vineyards hold 60 % Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc on clay and marl soils and the vines average 20 years of age. With this 2008 this wine continues to over-deliver and offer value that is practically unmatched in the world of French wine. Don’t miss it. The 2005 was our Wine of the Year for 2009!
