Les Piliers de Maison Blanche, Montagne Saint-Émilion 2016

Vignobles Despagne-Rapin

Vignobles Despagne-Rapin

  • France Bordeaux
A family estate inheriting the winemaking tradition from the Despagne family and the estate from the Rapin family. Maison Blanche is located on a thin strip of land in the southwest part of the village of Montagne. The estate is made up of old varieties of Cabernets and Merlot, planted between 1943 and 1964 and it has been farmed biodynamically for almost ten years.

Nicolas Despagne runs this 32 hectare estate and makes lovely, distinct wines. "Les Piliers" de Maison Blanche is great value, with a lovely vibrant colour and a nose that gives off wafts of supple berries with just the beginnings of spice and dried fruits. It's pretty easy-going and the tannins are soft enough for you to keep wanting more. The finish is long and very pure.
