In 2009, Julie and Xavier purchased Monplaisir, which consists of two parcels: one planted on silt below Château d’Issan, the other planted on gravel and clay below Château Margaux. Made of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, Monplaisir is a Bordeaux Superieur adjacent to the appellation of Margaux. It is this proximity the French Vineprestigious appellation that makes this wine incredible value for the money.

In the glass, this wine shows an opaque, dark ruby core with pink and garnet reflections on the rim. The nose is redolent of classic Bordeaux with all the blackcurrants & cherry in harmony with mature notes of leather, tobacco, tar, graphite & crushed rock. The medium-bodied palate has some nice, approachable tannins & is an extension of the notes displayed on the nose, along with some fresh plums, cocoa powder & a nuanced touch of oak.
