(based on 55 ratings)
Located in: Wines by Type, Red
This Chateau is owned by Frank Mahler-Besse, owner of Chateau Palmer in Margaux and many other first class wine making properties in Bordeaux and around the world. In 1964 his great-great grandmother rebuilt this historic Bergerac property which lies less than six miles from the village of St. Emilion. The terrior is identical to right bank Bordeaux and so the vineyards hold 60 % Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc on clay and marl soils and the vines average 20 years of age. With this 2008 this wine continues to over-deliver and offer value that is practically unmatched in the world of French wine. Don’t miss it. The 2005 was our Wine of the Year for 2009!

Comments about Chateau Michel de Montaigne 2008 Bergerac:

The reviews are a bit enthusiastic. It is a good wine but does not have the balance, depth or structure of a Bordeaux or comparable US blend. Worth $9 but one can find as good or better close to home.

Comments about Chateau Michel de Montaigne 2008 Bergerac:

For a light bodied wine, this Cab/Merlot blend has a lot to offer. Pleasant aromas of plum, cherry and fig give way to a smooth and easy drinking wine. Great for an everyday wine and at this price it's tough to find a better value from this region.

Comments about Chateau Michel de Montaigne 2008 Bergerac:

This wine was identified as the "Best Buy Wine of the Year" for 2009. I was disappointed. It was better after it was allowed to breath for 30-45 minutes but it continued to be harsh and without out any quality flavor of fruit, spice or otherwise. I will put the remaining bottles down for 6 months or so and see if it gets any better.

Comments about Chateau Michel de Montaigne 2008 Bergerac:

This wine is an excellent Bordeaux at a very reasonable price. I have drunk alot of 2005 Bordeaux, a year that produced some of the best Bordeaux in a while. This one ranks at the top, particularly for the price. Honestly it's worth 2 or 3 times what you pay.

Comments about Chateau Michel de Montaigne 2008 Bergerac:

Not a very bold wine, but it is clean and balanced with smooth tannins. Goes great with a simple weeknight meal. Agree with some others that for about $11, this is a great value. Don't think this will age well so drink now through next year.

Comments about Chateau Michel de Montaigne 2008 Bergerac:

It paired well with salmon and grilled chicken for a 4th of July festival. IT took a while to open and I thought it was tight at first, perhaps a wile in the cellar would round the wine out a bit more. Once it sat around and we got to eating chocolate however it really blossomed. Paired with dark chocolate it really shined. 3 stars today could be more in a few years when I open the other bottle I bought

Comments about Chateau Michel de Montaigne 2008 Bergerac:

This wine has a strong crushed floral nose. Taste hints of cherries, strawberries and dark chocolate. It covers the tongue with balanced but tamed tannins, acidity and has a nice aged oak barrel flavor with a really nice smooth finish. Recommended with pastas (Red and Oil based sauces)Cheese platters,bready foods, and chocolate covered fruits. For the price this wine is a homerun. Also, I especially like the romantic aspect of it being from Bergerac!! :o)

Comments about Chateau Michel de Montaigne 2008 Bergerac:

Great balance and depth of flavor. I usually let a bottle settle for 2 weeks after shipment, but I tried this after 1 week of resting. I found it to be an outstanding value. I'd serve this wine proudly to any guest and the price almost qualifies it as a "daily drinker".
