  • Winemaker Notes Gascony, lying between the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenees Mountains, is home to vineyards with real character, just like the men who cultivate them. Alain Brumont is the leader here. He was a pioneer in Madiran and Côtes de Gascogne wines, bringing them to rank with the world’s best. The Brumont wines benefit now from an international recognition and remain at a very good value for money. Alain purchased Château Montus to create the wine of his dreams. Inventive, a tireless builder, and possessing a good bit of sheer nerve, he had constructed his first underground cellars at Bouscassé in 1988, then the new Château Montus cellars in 1995. By 2003, the chateau had been renovated to receive seminars and special events.
