September Wine Pick: Chateau de Malengin, Montagne Saint-Emilion 2009

This WINE PICK of the month was written for the Luke's of Cape Cod website.

Chateau de Malengin, Montagne Saint-Emilion 2009

Chateau de Malengin is a medieval fortress in the Montagne Saint-Emilion region of Bordeaux, France. It stands on a limestone plateau above the slopes of its vineyards. Baron Edmond de Rothschild, famous for Chateau Lafite, now runs the place and produces its wine.

Malengin is considered one of the most sought after wines of Montagne Saint-Emilion. It's a classic "right bank" blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Those three guys love to make great wine together.

It smells of plums, vanilla and brown sugar. There's flavors of blackberry, dark cherries and oak. It's silky smooth and lush on the midpalate, has a nice kick of acidity, and finishes spicy and hot with tannin. This wine is just very well balanced.

There is no question that Malengin is exactly what you want with a simply seasoned grilled ribeye or porterhouse to end your summer.
