Story

The Montine Estate was created in 1933 when Albert Monteillet purchased the farm. Rich from the expertise of her father and uncle, Mélina, the 4th generation of the family, took over the management of the Estate. With all her enthusiasm, she is
challenging herself to combine traditionnal and contemporary methods.

Vineyard

«Gourmandises» is created with fruit from two vineyards: one located on a chalky soil and the other one on a light clay soil. There is no use of insecticides, pesticides or herbicides at Domaine de Montine. The use of organic fertilizer is strictly reserved to the plot of land concerned and is done with respect to ground/plant harmony. Manual work on growing vines. High trellising, green harvest and leaf thinning according to the vintage. Night harvest.

Vinification

This wine is made of overripe grapes, picked only on the best vintages. It is vinified by stopping the fermentation halfway through via adding alcohol to kills the yeast. The result is that a large portion of the grape’s sugar remains, giving the wine its rich natural sweetness. Once Fermentation is stopped, maceration continues for an extra fort time for further flavor and color extraction, under temperature control.

Tasting Notes

A color of deep velvety purple. The nose opens on ripe black fruit with hints of licorice. The palate is soft, gentle with a velvet sensation balanced by fresh juicy flavors, for a long elegant finish.

Food Pairing

Ideally paired with dark chocolate or Roquefort and Fourme d’Ambert .
