Chateau Montus Blanc 2012
Montus was a vision purchased by Alain Brumont in 1979 with 12 hectares and today expanded to 85 hectares. The secret is the terroir. Unlike most of Madiran, the soil at Montus is similar to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, large pebbles or galets some 20in to 6ft in depth over a clay soil, and the slopes are steep. Yields are low and harvesting is by hand.
The cellar today is a showpiece of which many a Bordeaux Château would be envious. Rows and rows of small and large stainless steel cuves and an enormous barrel cellar.
The white Château Montus Pacherenc Sec is made from 85% Petit Courbu and15% Petit Manseng and barrel fermented in demi-muids. This is a stunning wine with great minerality akin to a Grand Cru White Burgundy.

Wine EnthusiastAlain Brumont likes to throw challenges at himself and this is one of them. Made from two really local grapes, Petit Courbu and Petit Manseng, this wine is dry and strongly oxidative. It has fascinating touches of honey, of yellow fruit, of spice and hints of toast from the wood aging in large barrels. The wine is now very mature and very ready to drink.
