Created for the first time in 1985, this Madiran 100% Tannat has turned the world upside down by exceeding in many tastings the first great French wines, thus putting on the front of the stage this local grape variety. The Château Montus Prestige vintage comes from the selection of the best terroirs in the vineyard and represents what the Tannat can offer.
Strong slopes covered with rolled pebbles, subsoil of brown and orange clays in layers.
South exposure, warm soils favoring strong maturities. These are the highest parcels of Montus.
Vines 35 years old. Pick up in crates.
An atypical character, generous, an amplitude of the elements, depth, a discreet and complex fruit. Rich and opulent wine. Some years, balsamic, chimney tar, cocoa, highly sought after by cigar lovers
It goes well with red meats, chocolate desserts and berries, as well as world cuisines.
