2016 Marquis De Mons Margaux
2016 Marquis De Mons Margaux; France
“A blend of 64% Merlot and 36% Cabernet Sauvignon. Fresh, juicy cassis, earth and floral notes define the personality of this medium-bodied wine. Soft with black cherries and an espresso finish. Balanced, with supple tannins and good aromatic expression.Marquis de Mons 2016 is marked by a fruity palate that makes it enjoyable young but also within 5-7 years.” Winemaker’s Notes
