Classification Cru Bourgeois
ABV 14%

Top quality Sauternes from this young winemaker and unusually good at this price level. Perhaps a little lighter in colour and weight than previous vintages but still amply rich and sweet with a creamy, waxy texture and a cut of acidity that keeps the whole beautifully streamlined. L&S (Jun 2019)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Château Monteils

Château Monteils is located in the village of Preignac, part of the Sauternes appellation. Some other well known Sauternes from the village of Preignac are, for example Château de Malle, Château Suduiraut and Chateau Gillette.

The vineyard area covers 12 hectares, which annually produce 35,000 bottles. The average age of the vines is 30 years.

A perfect match for a foie gras appetizer, veal dishes or dessert. But also discover another excellent combination with Roquefort.
