Pessac Leognan Grand Vin de Graves Château Pontac Monplaisir 2017

MXN $1340

Grape: 60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon

Appellation: Pessac-Léognan AOC Grand Vin de Graves

Region: Bordeaux, France

You’ll taste/smell: On the nose, it is “punchy” with ripe black fruits but not too cooked. A hint of liquorice as well as herbaceous and floral notes offer a nice complexity. Despite its youth, the tannins are of a beautiful finesse. Very nice vintage built for laying down and which should ideally be drunk from 2025.

Good to have it with: goes really well with aged cheeses or a prime rib.

The Winery: Château Pontac-Monplaisir

Château Pontac-Monplaisir belonged to the Pontac family in the 16th and 17th centuries, which also owned the famous Château Haut-Brion at the time. The Count of Pontac had made of this domain, an appointment of hunting and gastronomy.

At the time of the Revolution, Pontac-Monplaisir was divided and then belonged to several landowners. It was only in 1955 that Jean MAUFRAS, in turn, undertook the reorganization of the vineyard as well as the renovation of all the cellars, to allow bottling at the Château. This property belonging to Mr. Jean and Alain Maufras who perpetuate the family tradition extends over 16 hectares (80% in red and 20% in white) at the gates of the Bordeaux urban area.
