Product Description

When Alain Brumont bought Chateau Montus in 1980, the South West vineyards were in full stagnation. The Tannat vines had been pulled out and replaced by cereals. Being an enthusiastic winegrower and devoted to his vineyard, Alain Brumont started to look for the ideal terroirs for planting Tannat, the emblematic Madiran grape variety.
20 years later, he became the proprietor of almost all the great terroirs of the appellation. With relentless hard work and strong convictions, he managed to prove to the world that great wines could be produced in Madiran and that they could equal Bordeaux wines.

GRAPE VARIETY: 80 % Tannat, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Approximately 20 year old vines.

CULTURE: Yield: 40-45 hl/ha. Density 7 500 vines/ha. Double Guyot vine training, short pruning. Reasoned pest control, natural compost (mutton and cow manure).
