Château Monbrison 2021

A fruity and balanced Margaux 2021 red wine

The estate

A former smallholding of Château d’Arsac, Château Monbrison has, since 1921, been a family-owned estate located within the appellation of Margaux, on the left bank of Bordeaux. Today, the family’s 4th generation is at the helm of the property.

The vineyard

The Château Monbrison vineyard covers an area of 15 hectares in the Margaux appellation. The vines are 35 years old on average and are planted on deep Pyrenean gravel soils, which guarantee optimal drainage and good fertility. Certified as High Environmental Value (HVE3), Château Monbrison has commenced a plot-by-plot experiment in biodynamics.

The vintage

2021 began with poor weather conditions during spring which caused a slight delay in the vegetative cycle. However, the beautiful Indian summer and the extended end-of-season enabled the estate to harvest from 27/09 for the Merlot and 01/10 for the Cabernets. The grapes were all perfectly ripe.

Vinification and ageing

Maceration is carried out in stainless steel vats with punching down and gentle pumping over. Vinification is carried out entirely in amphorae and barrels (100% French oak, 40% new). Racking is carried out every three months.

The blend

Château Monbrison 2021 comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Merlot (20%) and Cabernet Franc (10%).
