Kressmann Monopole rouge
A.O.C. Bordeaux - Rouge
Convinced of the potential quality of blending several cru wines from the same terroir, Edouard Kressmann followed his intuition and in 1897 launched Kressmann Monopole, which is the oldest Bordeaux brand still available on the market today. Legend would have it that the name of the wine was a tribute to a famous singer at the time, Adelina Patti, who developed a particular soft spot for “this white wine for which Kressmann had the monopoly”.
Still today, the Kressmann winemakers select their partners on the basis of the quality of their terroir and their viticultural prowess, in order to give Kressmann Monopole all the qualities of a great brand.
Kressmann Monopole red results from a rigorously selection of Cru wines, of which the finest lots have undergone meticulous and perfectly measured ageing.

Tasting : Kressmann Monopole red is an elegant and harmonious balance of fruit and oak character. With its crimson appearance and flashes of copper, the wine reveals a complex bouquet of red fruit, vanilla and spiced aromas. Initially round and robust on the palate, the silky tannins on the finish reflect the ripe fruit character backed by hints of vanilla.
