Winemaker's Notes

20 Mille is produced from a 1.4-hectare section of the Croix Mouton vineyard. The chateau takes its name from the fact it's planted 20,000 vines per hectare. Produced from 100% Merlot, this round textured wine shows aromas of accented, dark jammy fruit, licorice, and chocolate. 50% of the wine is aged in the cigar shaped barrels.

Critical Acclaim
