Belle-Dame (Painted Lady)
Lat. Vanessa cardui
The Painted Lady butterfly – Belle Dame – is considered to be the queen of migratory butterflies. It can be seen in the vines of Château Montrose, from flowering through to harvest, delicately poised on a Cabernet Sauvignon flower or brushing against a rose as it flutters at the end of a row. Montrose is a treasure trove of sap and nectar. Having the butterfly in our ecosystem is a source of great pride as it embodies our respect and affection for the terroir – the very essence of Château Montrose.
Beyond the vines, beyond the wine, and through the different vintages, this collection is an invitation to discover the ecosystem that is part of the beauty and richness of Château Montrose
