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). It is a beautiful accompaniment to red meat, desserts with chocolate and red fruit, and exotic cuisine.
Rich, multilayered and intensely fruity, with gorgeous blackberry and dark plum flavors laced with silky tannins and luscious spice notes. Chocolate mole and espresso elements fill the powerful finish
