  • Winemaker Notes Produced for the first time in 1985, this Madiran made with 100% Tannat caused major waves in the wine world when it did better than many of France's top wines at tastings, and placed this local variety in the limelight. Prestige de Château Montus is made from a selection of the vineyard's best terroirs and represents the Tannat grape at its best. It is almost entirely sold en primeur (before bottling).
  • Tasting Notes A rich, opulent wine that has an atypical, generous character, with good volume and depth, and subtle, complex fruit. In some years, it has balsamic and cocoa aromas, and is much sought after by connoisseurs of cigars. It is a beautiful accompaniment to red meat, desserts with chocolate and red fruit, and exotic
    cuisine
