Tasting Notes

Focusing relentlessly on experimenting with barrels for 20 years, Château Montus Sec has received the full benefit of these efforts: this wine’s special character is due to its vinification and ageing in 600 liter barrels, called demi-muids, made from wooden staves that are more than four centimeters thick. The impact of the wood on the wine is reduced, with a more mellow woodiness, beneficial to the preservation of the fruity aromas, while maintaining a perfect balance, for a very expressive, high quality wine.
