 91 Points - International Wine Report!
"The wine delivers aromas of blackberries and cherry followed by pain grille, minerals and lightly roasted coffee, which burst from the glass. The mineral-driven palate is medium to full-bodied with fine-grained tannins, finishing up with nice length, marked by flavors of blackberry and spices."

The 2011 Château Montaiguillon comes from a single 28 hectare plot adjacent to Pomerol and the Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classés. It consists of 40-year-old (mostly Merlot) vines with roots digging deep into the hallowed clay-limestone terroir. The wine delivers aromas of blackberries and cherry followed by pain grille, minerals and lightly roasted coffee, which burst from the glass. The mineral-driven palate is medium to full-bodied with fine-grained tannins, finishing up with nice length, marked by flavors of blackberry and spices. This is a fantastic showing in this vintage.

Chateau Montaiguillon 2011 Montagne-Saint-Emilion
70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
 
On a single 69-acre (28 hectare) plot adjacent to Pomerol and the Saint-Émilion Grands Crus Classés, the 40 year-old mostly Merlot vines (along with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon) are in the terroir they express best, at the historical heart of Bordeaux’s Right Bank, Saint-Émilion. These well-aged vines have roots digging deep into the hallowed clay-limestone terroir in the southwest corner of the appellation, along the Barbanne River. The effect of these soils on the wine is a thoughtful structure, with great definition of texture among the vibrant aromas of small red and black fruits that are quickly followed by a curve of grounded minerality. Deeper sensual notes reveal themselves, hints of warm spice and a tinge of chocolate, as the wine swirls and grows, soft tannins staying neatly focused until the long release of its finish. Owner Chantal Amart (whose family has dedicatedly worked this vineyard for three generations now) says of the 2011 vintage: “1994, 2003, 2006 and 2011 were the four hottest vintages in 100 years. Our clayey limestone soil, combined with our 40% Cabernets have helped us to reach 50HL/ha which is a good result considering this lack of rain. The harvest took place on Sept. 15, two weeks earlier than 2010. I have strictly selected the 1st Wine, 60% of my total production only instead of 70 or 80% in 2009 and 2010. I guarantee a constant quality every year.”

About Montagne-Saint-Emilion
Montagne-Saint-Emilion is the largest 'satellite' title of the Saint-Emilion appellation.
Montagne-Saint-Emilion surrounds the village of Montagne, three miles (4.8km) to the north of the town of Saint-Emilion. The appellation laws state that wines made from the Saint-Georges commune (recognized as an independent appellation in its own right) may also be labeled as Montagne-Saint-Emilion.
The grape varieties permitted within the appellation are Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Merlot is the dominant variety by far, most often partnered with Cabernet Franc (known here as 'Bouchet'). The four Saint-Emilion satellites are Lussac-Saint-Emilion, Montagne-Saint-Emilion, Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion and Saint-Georges-Saint-Emilion – all located to the north of Saint-Emilion town. They are known as satellites because the area's more prestigious wine estates historically resented these supposedly inferior wines using the Saint-Emilion name. In the middle of the 20th century, several boundaries were changed and the villages of Lussac, Montagne, Puisseguin and Saint-Georges were granted their own independent Saint-Emilion appellations. The Barbanne river, which runs roughly parallel to the Dordogne, marks the southern boundary of three of these appellations. The river is of particular significance because it is the historical boundary between the 'Langue d'oil' and the 'Langue d'oc' – the northern and southern halves of old France respectively. This is where the Languedoc wine region derives its name.
