Chateaus Montus Blanc
Francois' French Opinion: Alain Brumont likes to throw challenges at himself and this is one of them. Made from two really local grapes, Petit Courbu and Petit Manseng, this wine is dry and strongly oxidative. A fruity, long-lasting, rich and well-balanced white wine with an attractive yellow colour and a medium-weight, highly complex bouquet of pineapple and mango with a little apple, quince and apricot. It is dry on the palate with an appealing acidity; soft, full-bodied and harmonious, with stone fruit and citrus aromas alongside exotic fruit, complemented by vegetal attributes and roasted notes of toast. The wine is now very mature and very ready to drink.
