Château Montlabert is situated in the St. Emilion appellation of Bordeaux. This beautiful château was a hunting lodge in the 1700’s and the name originates from the founder of the estate, Michel Descazes Montlabert. Today the property is owned by the Castel Group, who also own Château Beychevelle in Saint-Julien.
The group hired the well-known Hubert de Bouard (manager of Château Angelus) as their consultant and his first vintage was the 2010. The vineyards are planted with around 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Château Montlabert produces around 3,100 cases per annum.
