Château Montfollet Le Valentin
In the heart of the best terroirs of the Blaye appellation, this family property has 60 hectares of vineyards and is located on slopes of red clays and clay-limestone overlooking the Gironde Estuary just opposite the most prestigious Margaux Crus.
It has belonged to the Raimond family for three generations. They believe in using minimal artificial products in the vineyard preferring to plough between the guyot-pruned vines to control weeds and push nutrients and oxygen into the soil.
The wine is fermented in large 400 litre French oak barrels before ageing on lees for several months to build complexity and depth.
