Château Michel de Montaigne is a castle
near Bergerac and Saint-Émilion, in the
Dordogne département. Built in the 14th
century, it was the family residence of the Renaissance
thinker Michel de Montaigne, one of France's most
important early philosophers. He is the one you
may (or may not) thank for making essays popular
as a literary genre.
This typical Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Franc,
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is produced with
traditional methods and aged for 18 months in French
oak barrels. A very approachable Bordeaux in its
youth, but will continue to improve with proper
it with the “Vegetable Beef Soup” from our Wines
by Jennifer Cookbook.
