CHÂTEAU MONTLABERT

is located on the world-famous Route de Saint-Emilion. A close neighbour of Château Figeac, Cheval Blanc and Clos des Jacobins, the property is very much part of the fabric of Bordeaux’s historic vineyard.

This is an iconic property, a beautifully renovated Carthusian style structure surrounded by magnificent parkland. With its 20 hectares of vineyard tended like a garden, Château Montlabert is all about precision. The vineyard is worked plot by plot, vine by vine. Every effort is made to ensure that the whole process, from vine to vinification, fulfils the château's specific requirements.

Château Montlabert

Château Montlabert, the property's eponymous first wine, calls above all else for patience. Designed for bottle-aging, the structure is dense, offering powerful, concentrated aromas. The nose is characterised by very ripe dark fruits (spiced blueberry) and an overall elegance and harmony. Lively and full-bodied, Château Montlabert owes its magnificent, long finish to its bold Cabernet Sauvignon.

Château La Croix Montlabert

La Croix Montlabert, the property's second wine, is light, fresh and easy-to-drink. Expressively fruity, the wine offers an explosion of complex aromas, with nuanced notes of chocolate and spice. Soft tannins bring out La Croix Montlabert's lively smoothness.
