“The progressive conversion of our entire vineyard to organic viticulture
is continuing and giving us complete satisfaction, says Hervé Berland (CEO) and now more than 60% of the plots come under this new approach.
Our new vat room, equipped last year with a large number of tanks of small volume (50 to 135 hl), has once again allowed us this year to continue, during vinification, the very precise selection work carried out within the plots in the vineyard. During the first tastings for the blending we could take advantage of 82 different batches of free-run wine, representative of the 26 climats identified at the property. Following the primeur tastings in recent weeks, the 2017 vintage(1) is viewed as representing a great classic year for Château Montrose, and is along the lines of our recent vintages.”.
