Another velvety-textured 2016 Pomerol shows richness and beauty. Full body with plenty of hazelnuts, dark-berry, and spice character. Long, long finish. Drink in 2022.
94/100 James Suckling
A rocking effort that brings the goods, the 2016 Château Montviel is a tiny production cuvée based on 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc brought up in new barrels. Surpassing the terrific 2015, it boasts a deep purple color as well as a mammoth bouquet of blackberries, plums, crushed violets, and forest floor. Deep, full-bodied, beautifully textured, yet still lively and weightless on the palate, it’s the real deal and is a brilliant Pomerol to drink over the coming 15-20 years.
94/100 Jeb Dunnuck
The 2016 Montviel is supple and racy, with plenty of dark red raspberry and plum fruit pushed forward. Mocha, espresso, menthol, rose petals, and sweet spice build in this opulent, inviting Pomerol. Soft contours and silky tannins add to the wine's sheer appeal. It's great to see the 2016 showing so well. Elevage here has worked beautifully.
92/100 Vinous Media
They always produce a contemporary style at Montviel, and this capitalizes extremely well on the sweetness of rich, nuanced layers of ripe, summery fruit and damson compote with some jammy edges. It's clearly good quality, and exuberant in style.

Chateau Rouget Le Carillon de Rouget Pomerol 2015
The nose is powerfully aromatic with a complex mix of baked raspberries, figs, sweet pipe tobacco, vanilla, leather and spice. The palate is round and full-bodied with fine-grained, luxuriant tannins and a high concentration of ripe cassis, plum and clove flavors that balance beautifully with a subtle mineral core.

Intense garnet with purple hues. Black cherry, plum, violet and mint notes abound. The 2015 retains lovely freshness, cut and verve. The mid-weight style is all about subtlety. Violet and plum notes add nuance on the finish.
