Château Mongravey Margaux 2014
- Textured, savoury
This Bordeaux hails from the Margaux appellation, a cab-merlot blend with a touch of cab franc and a whole lotta charm. With four scores of 95 points, as well as 91 points from James Suckling, it’s an awesome expression of the area and anyone who loves Margaux will love this.
This vino is fresh and elegant, says Decanter, with “impressive tannins”, “no overt oak” and “a deluge of plum fruits”. It’s juicy, full of red and black fruits and will go down an absolute treat with any of your favourite meats. Grab it for a special dinner with a special someone or your not so special family. It’ll please ’em all.

Winemaker: Karin Berneleau
Although her family owns Château Mongravey in Margaux and Château de Braude in the Haut-Médoc, it wasn’t until the early 2000s that the pull of winemaking in her blood was too strong for Karin Berneleau. Around the turn of the century, Karin left her prior life of physiotherapy, osteopathy and physical education and returned to serve her family estates. Her energy and precision are now evident in the more recent successes of the wines. We can only imagine the grapes are being whipped into shape as only a phys ed teacher can.
“A delicate, perfumed nose starts this off, leading to a fresh and lithe palate full of attractive fruit and tiny, firm tannins. Nothing is done to excess, resulting in a decent wine with evident Margaux character.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
