“Trained as a Physical therapist, I joined Régis Bernaleau in 1999, owner of Château Mongravey. I naturally embraced the vineyard to bring today my very personal touch. Mongravey has become for me an everyday passion for the terroir. After much patience and listening, we adopted each other in order to share today my sense of the wine and the one that Nature gives us.”
Shiny intense blue colour with a lovely concentration. Complexe and full of sweetness nose, with very young notes of peat, wood, golden bread crust. Mouth powerful and caressing at the same time, where the fruit appears tenderly married to liquorice and vanilla. The best is to come. What a lovely promise…
