Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: The Montalus Rouge presents itself with a rich ruby-red colour and a slight garnet rim, hinting at its maturity.

  • Palate: The palate confirms the fruit-forward nature of the wine, with juicy flavours of ripe berries and cherries balanced by a pleasant acidity. The spice notes from the nose reappear, joined by hints of leather and tobacco, adding depth and a savoury edge. The tannins are soft and well-integrated, providing a smooth, velvety texture. The finish is medium-length, with lingering fruit and a hint of peppery spice.
