Item Description

"(75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc) Red fruit, plum, earth and little hints of mocha greet the nose and follow through on the palate, with medium-body, silky tannins and a nice mineral-tinged finish. An exceptional value in Right Bank Bordeaux, the Chateau Milon Cuvee Caprice totally overdelivers at this price point!"~Distributor Notes

"In the capable hands of Alexia and Pierre Bouyer, the estates of Close de la Cure and Château Milon represent more than seven generations of viticultural heritage. With the purchase of 4.5 additional hectares in 2008, situated on superb gravel terroir, the estate increased to 18 hectares. A portion of the vines for Château Milon’s Cuvée Caprice are situated at the base of the Saint Christophe des Bardes slope and the rest lie on the gravel soils of Saint Sulpice. While the average vine age is 30 years, it is believed that vines were planted on the plateau in the Middle Ages. The vineyards are densely planted at 6600-9000 vines per hectare and there is a diverse array of soils dominated by sand, sandstone and clay. The Bouyer family is committed to farming ecologically with great respect for the terroir.

We were thrilled to discover this exceptional value in red Bordeaux. It is a pleasure to add the Chateau Milon Cuvée Caprice to our long list of wines that truly over deliver."~Distributor Notes

Great wine for the price

"A lot of value at this price point (the distributor wasn't kidding). 2012 is a known great year in St. Emilion and it shows; nice body, dry with depth of flavor Paired well with Filet and asparagus, just as it did with apps."
