A richly structured wine bursting with black fruits, this is rich in tannins and wood-aging flavors. This latest release from the estate in western Margaux is still very young but has great promise. The dominance of Cabernet Sauvignon gives the black-currant fruit and the tannins for aging. Drink this wine from 2024.

Sleek and fresh, with engaging blackberry, plum and black currant compote flavors pumping through nicely, while flecks of lilac, incense and black tea are sprinkled throughout. Good energy through the finish, with a bright iron note too. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2032. 7,900 cases made, 1,200 cases imported.

Description

Régis Bernaleau developed his properties from a small vineyard in the Margaux appellation, inherited from his father in 1980, Château De Braude in the Haut-Médoc appellation, Château Galland in the Moulis appellation, and Château Mongravey in the Margaux appellation. Today the 24.5 hectares that make up the three estates are spread over 14.5 hectares in AOC Margaux, 8.7 hectares in AOC Haut-Médoc and one hectare in Moulis.

Since 1999 the property has oriented its efforts towards uncompromising quality. The vineyard is managed in a reasoned culture with the greatest respect for the vine. Heavy investments have been made. The stainless steel vat allows partial vinification and thermoregulation provides perfect temperature control during vinification.
The air-conditioned cellar equipped with 540 French oak barrels from eight different coopers ensures the complexity and quality of the wines during aging.
From the year 2000, Karin Bernaleau, put his talent and his innate sense of contact to the development of marketing and communication.

In 2003, work and thoroughness were rewarded with the classification of Château Mongravey and Château De Braude, in Cru Bourgeois during the revision of the historic classification.
Since 2009, Jérôme Bernaleau, Régis' youngest son, has joined the property and puts his technical skills at the service of the qualitative requirements of wines. It was in 2011 that he took over 1 hectare of Moulis and created Château Galland, in one of the appellation's most promising regions.



Château Mongravey, a growing Margaux

Since 1980, the destiny of Château Mongravey has been in the hands of Régis Bernaleau who designed and built remarkable cellars of aesthetics and technique. It is through hard work that he succeeds in transmitting his passion by ensuring that this exceptional vintage always shines with more prestige and elegance. Mongravey is a magical wine that goes with nobility to the most subtle cuisine.

Today, it is a modern property producing an elegant and well-balanced wine offering all the typicity of a very good Margaux, at a price that is often affordable compared to the other wines in its quality range.
