Details

Without doubt, the leading estate in Madiran for the last 20 years, owner, Alain Brumont has done an enormous amount for the appellation. He set the example by reducing yields, increasing significantly the density of vines per hectare, using only the best available grafts, harvesting perfectly ripe grapes and oak-ageing most of his wine.

Chateau Montus is the flagship domaine of the region's leading winemaker, Alain Brumont, who also owns Chateau Bouscasse as well as Meinjarre, La Rosée and La Tyre. These estates represent some of the greatest terroirs of Madiran, which are spread over more than twenty hills within the appellation. Chateau Montus has the more classic terroir of all the domaines, being sited on a gravel hillside, with an incline of 5-10%, in contrast to the heavier clay soils of Chateau Bouscasse.
