About Domaine Montrose

Situated near Pézenas, south-west of Montpellier, Domaine Montrose is very much a twenty-first century wine producer. Between the forward-thinking owner, Bernard Coste, and the skilled winemaker, Michel Le Goaëc, Montrose are able to cultivate local and foreign grape varieties from Rolle to Cabernet Sauvignon, vinify them to perfection, and then produce beautifully married blends. Fully thermo-controlled steel tanks are used for fermenting and ageing all of the cépages.

Appellation: Vin de Pays des Côtes des Thongues

Côtes de Thongue is an appellation in the Languedoc-Roussillon region, located in the watershed from the river Thongue, the soils range form sandy to gravelly to clay. The climate is Mediterranean - characterized by mild winters, hot, dry summers, with rare, seasonal rainfall over the winters. Whilst all kinds of wines are produced here, the region is synonymous with it's production of Rose.

Grape Blend: Grenache | Syrah

Two of the key components of the top Southern Rhône blends, Châteauneuf-du-Pape the most famous example. The two are generally only found as a blend on their own in the Languedoc, used for fruit-driven, early drinking Vin de Pays wines. The Grenache with its body, sweetness and warmth and Syrah with its colour tannic structure and spicy black fruit characteristics, are ideally suited to each other.
