Montagne Saint-Emilion AOC

The picturesque, medieval town of Saint-Emilion is where you’ll find some of the finest (and most expensive) Bordeaux. Surrounding the region are four premium villages, each allowed to append their name to Saint-Emilion’s. Acclaimed critic Robert Parker says these 'satellite' wines are "for the true connoisseur" and it's in Montagne that you'll consistently find "some of the deepest, richest wines." Like this fantastic discovery …

At Château Gachon, the Arpin family (who own four small châteaux in the region) have invested heavily in the estate over the last decade. Consequently, quality has never been higher. Jean-Baptiste and his son Gael combine Merlot with both Cabernets (Sauvignon and Franc) to make this outstanding, barrel-aged cuvée. It's rich, with lavish aromas of black currant and plum, plus a silky-smooth texture and a toasty, chocolaty finish. The family recommends decanting it about an hour prior to serving, then pairing it with roast lamb or beef.
