2016 Montviel, Pomerol

SKU #1523886 94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A rocking effort that brings the goods, the 2016 Château Montviel is a tiny production cuvée based on 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc brought up in new barrels. Surpassing the terrific 2015, it boasts a deep purple color as well as a mammoth bouquet of blackberries, plums, crushed violets, and forest floor. Deep, full-bodied, beautifully textured, yet still lively and weightless on the palate, it’s the real deal and is a brilliant Pomerol to drink over the coming 15-20 years. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Another velvety-textured 2016 Pomerol that shows richness and beauty. Full body with plenty of hazelnut, dark-berry and spice character. Long, long finish. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Montviel is supple and racy, with plenty of dark red raspberry and plum fruit pushed forward. Mocha, espresso, menthol, rose petal and sweet spice build in this opulent, inviting Pomerol. Soft contours and silky tannins add to the wine's sheer appeal. It's great to see the 2016 showing so well. Élevage here has worked beautifully. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Montviel is medium to deep garnet-purple colored with tobacco, redcurrants, menthol and black soil with blackberries and blueberries plus a waft of fallen leaves. The palate is medium-bodied, chewy, lively and earthy, finishing just a bit lean. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)
