Winemaker's Notes:

In keeping with Bordeaux's left bank tradition, this wine is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon. Mongravey is a rich full bodied wine that's quite velvety in the mouth. It's full of black fruit flavors along with rich chocolate and hints of mint. It's very approachable at this young age. It is a wine which will offer you pure instants of happiness and emotion. Blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot. This wine will mature in 8 to 10 years but will cellar for up to 15 years.

Since 1980, Château Mongravey's destiny lay in the hands of Régis Bernaleau who, thought and built the remarkable cellar, both aesthetically and technically. It's through hard work that he has been able to pass on his passion while ensuring that this exceptional cru always shines with prestige and elegance.

Château Mongravey is "amongst the most elegant Margaux wines"... It is not surprising that the "Alliance des Crus Bourgeois" has awarded this exceptional cru the title of "Cru Bourgeois" as of the 2003 vintage.
