Is an iconic property in Saint-Emilion. Since acquiring the château in 2008, the Castel family has devoted time and resources to the project, shaping a new history and a new ambition. For over 10 years, the focus has been on listening to and understanding the terroir in order to build a winemaking business based on a desire for sustainable excellence.
Tasting note: Château Montlabert plays on elegance rather than power. Throughout this complex and precise score that the blending work represents, the characteristic notes of the Cabernet Franc and Merlot gracefully intertwine. The most iconic vintages, 2012, 2015, 2016, show a refined structure, a controlled natural acidity, a lovely texture on the mid-palate, an aromatic and tannic elegance. In these wines, the Merlot often reveals an almost Pomerolian softness, its roots drawing deep down into the veins of blue clay.
