Ch Mondain Bordeaux
Chateau Mondain AOC Bordeaux 2015 [75cl] France

This family-owned estate lies on a limestone plateau in the village of Juillac near Castillon la Bataille. Born into a family which had rented the property for 3 generations, Pierre Ciroli purchased it in 2000. Pierre Ciroli does all the viticultural and winemaking work on the estate, shouldered by his two sons who will be taking up the reins of the business after him. The greatest possible attention is paid to the vines and no effort is spared to ensure that tradition is respected in this vineyard of human dimensions.

GRAPE VARIETIES 60% Merlot Noir – 25% Cabernet Franc – 15% Cabernet Sauvignon TERROIR The vines are planted on south-facing slopes. The soil is made up of clay, limestone and rock.

TASTING NOTES The product of one of the greatest Bordeaux vintages, this wine offers all the elegance and refinement typical of a Bordeaux grand vin. Clad in an elegant dark red hue, it unveils a pleasing bouquet of blackcurrant mixed with fresh, earthy notes. The palate displays fine balance between the generous fruit and silky tannins. A fresh, fruity wine to enjoy over a festive meal of rib of beef or shoulder of lamb, or cheese. AGEING
