Château des Fougères Clos Montesquieu Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

$24.95

The 2014 des Fougeres - Clos Montesquieu is compelling. Crème de cassis, lavender, violet, plum, black cherry and black pepper are some of the many notes that flesh out in an inky, super-expressive wine endowed with real personality as well as class. The 2014 is compelling for many reasons, especially in the way it is both incredibly vivid and rich. This is a super-impressive showing from des Fougères and consulting winemaker Frédéric Massie. Drink till 2034. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Beautiful aromas with Cabernet leading the way. Ripe dark and red fruit, savory and herbal with dried flowers , vanilla, spices, and slight brett that blew off after 5-10 mins in glass. Very silky tannin with medium acid and medium finish. Solid performance, I believe 60/40 cab/merlot blend...

Lots of violets, dried flower notes. Took a day to really open up but very pleasurable bottle once the austerity wears off.

This is what the French do so much better than the US: inexpensive but honest Cab/Merlot. Open nose has smoky gravel, plummy fruit, and the palate is seamless and totally in balance. Just enough ripeness. Only 13%. Nice acids. Perfect with Peruvian roast chicken take out.

Really lovely. Dried flowers, some herbs, dark fruits in the background. Excellent tannin. Great with food.

Mild and fruity with a bit of tannin. My children gave me for father's day gift.

Nose was very Carmenere- like. Green peppers dominated. Deep purple color, lightly tannic. Thought it was a little thin mid- palate, but I liked it better than similar Bordeaux reds.

Garagiste selection. $18.91. Earthy, nice tannins. Great value.

Nose is beautiful floral perfume with a wordiness, almost like sandalwood and a cigar box. Black pepper, berry jam, earthiness, currants, and a hint of cigar box wood on the palate. Gourgeous. One of the best wines I’ve bought from garagiste.
