98 pt Vintage Vinous Media: 2020 Chateau Montfollet Altus Cotes De Bourg

Welcome to the Right Bank, where Merlot reigns supreme. Here, you have two tempting paths to choose from:

1st: Stick with the classic (and somewhat pricey) appellations like Saint-Émilion Grand Cru and Pomerol.

2nd: Let the experts at BHW guide you to smaller, lesser-known appellations that offer amazing wines at unbelievable prices.

Now, don’t get us wrong, who doesn’t love a bottle of Saint-Émilion or Pomerol? We certainly do! But sometimes, it's more about the the discovery, and the thrill of uncorking a fine Bordeaux (on any given weekday), knowing you're getting top-notch quality without breaking the bank.

If you've chosen the 2nd option (and trust me, you'll thank yourself later), allow me to introduce you to the 2020 Chateau Montfollet Altus Côtes De Bourg—a wine that not only punches above its weight class but also keeps your pockets happily full.

Chateau Montfollet is BHW’s direct import. Meaning? We scoured the Acquitaince to find the very best and deliver it directly to your doorstep. With over 5,000 wines tasted per year, we do the legwork so you don’t have to, ensuring you get only the best wines at the best prices!

Côtes de Bourg is one of France's oldest wine regions. Its proximity to the Gironde estuary made it a prime spot for the ancient Romans, who undoubtedly appreciated its wine as much as its convenience.

Château Montfollet is situated in the heart of Blaye, and the Altus vineyard, which produced the acclaimed 92-point 2020 Château Montfollet Altus, is located in the renowned Côtes de Bourg appellation. Blaye and Bourg are esteemed as two of Bordeaux’s best-value wine regions.

James Suckling showers praise on this Bordeaux gem, awarding it 92 points and describing it as “full and flavorful.” Made primarily from Merlot, with a touch of Malbec, both grapes thrive in Côtes de Bourg’s unique terroir.

Are you ready to elevate your wine experience with Bordeaux's best-kept secret? Embrace the allure of exceptional quality without breaking the bank. With prices like these, resisting that 'buy' button is nearly impossible.
