Château Monlot

Chateau Monlot - Cuvee Excellence

The fruit from our Merlot vines are grown in our clay-limestone mixed soil vineyards, which have just enough clay in it to retain moisture and keep the earth a bit cooler.

This full-bodied wine (formerly known as Cuvée Excellence), made of 77% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Franc, opens with fresh blackberries and cranberries laced with flavors of creamy mocha, vanilla and dried cherry. Abundant, mouthwatering flavors combined with soft, supple tannins lead to a long, satisfying finish.
