2014 Tres Jolie

2014 Très Jolie – $36/btl


Deep garnet color, the nose expresses a perfume of raspberry and potpourri with a faint hint of black truffle.  The silky palate has dark cherry flavors wrapped in grilled herbs and spice with a caressing, effortless mouthfeel.  The wine builds through the finish with a firm tannic backbone and notes of freshly tanned leather and damp earth.  Approachable today, this should evolve over the next 7-8 years and be lovely every step of the way.

Product Description

The Right Bank of Bordeaux is home to the world’s finest expression of Merlot, but Pomerol and Saint Emilion weren’t always its ruling King and Queen. For most of the Right Bank’s rich wine history that honor was bestowed upon nearby Fronsac, a stunning region dotted with Chateaus nestled between the Dorgogne and Isle rivers. For a thousand years Fronsac dominated trade and commerce and its wines were its finest ambassador. But a cycle of misfortune started in the 1800s with the French Revolution and Europe’s first serious Phylloxera epidemic, and the two World Wars punctuated its demise.

One thing never changed though, Fronsac’s incredible terroir of rolling hills, babbling brooks, and limestone-laden soils, and we’re thrilled to showcase it with our 2014 Montesquieu Très Jolie. This sultry blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon delivers a signature Right Bank experience – rich, savory fruit with perfumed aromatics and a complex, approachable structure. Wines like this are bringing about a serious renaissance in Fronsac, and the wine world is taking notice.
