The Wines

A range of reds, whites and roses which combine finesse and character

From the vine to the wine

Château Montplaisir has declared an environmental approach by obtaining organic certification of its grapes. At the end of the conversion period, the whole range of wines of the property will be certified. The first vintage of Château Montplaisir is 2015. The rather early harvest that year helped collect the grapes at their full maturity and with excellent health quality. The grapes were hand-picked, sorted, transported to the winery in small boxes, de stemmed and transferred to vats.

The vinification was made by grape variety and by land plot, in order to better identify and preserve the personality of each wine. After maceration for three weeks, Grenache, Syrah and Carignan are pressed and then begins their fermentation cycle when they are transformed into wine. Aging in vats helps soften and round their tannins. Some wines are kept for aging in our demi-muids (600l oak barrels), to enhance their personality.
