We're humbled to be able to offer a few selected following wines from the Montrose brand collection, which includes six wines with another two currently not in the Singapore listing:

Over the centuries, the Montrose cuvée has delighted generations of fans, thanks to the unusual terroirs the 100 Ha (250 Acre) vineyard is located and the master winemaking skill. For more details please refer to Montrose's website.
In 2018, Jeanne and Olivier Coste purchased Château des Adouzes. The brother and sister, together with their father, Bernard Coste, were looking for a superb red wine terroir. Château des Adouzes is located in the medieval village of Roquessels in the heart of the AOP Faugères appellation. This little Languedoc appellation is entirely made of one of the rarest and sought out soil types in the world: schist. The 42 ha vineyard contains mainly old vines, with some of the Carignans being over 90 years old. This exceptional terroir brings its trademark minerality and freshness to the wine it yields. The tiger is the symbol of the power and balance that represents all wines in the brand of Château des Adouzes:
Hundred-year-old vine from one of the most sought-after terroirs in the world
Made of 35% carignan,35% grenache noir, 30% syrah, Le Tigre is one of the excellent red wines for your celebration and enjoyment with families and friends. It's a wine for drinking within 3 years, best with roasted or grilled meats, barbecue or spaghetti bolognese. Le Tigre has an elegant 1.5L magnum format in addition to the standard 750ml bottle packaging.
A GSM (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre) blend, Frère et Sœur is the fruit from the best plots in Adouzes. Frère et Sœur means "brother & sister", a tribute to the two Château des Adouzes owners: Olivier Coste and his sister Jeanne Coste. A reserve wine, Frère et Sœur is produced in an extreme small quantity. The wine can be drunk young to enjoy its fruit, or after several years of cellaring to reveal its full aromatic complexity.
Le Tigre Blanc is the latest addition to the family of Tigers at the Adouzes. It's newly released in 2022, the Year of Tiger. Le Tigre blanc comes from a north-facing plot at 300m (984 ft) altitude, with Roussanne, Rolle and Grenache Blanc in composition. A rare blended white wine out of AOP Faugères.
"La Vieille" meaning "old lady" in French, is a symbol of the heritage of the almost century old vines of Carignan Noir planted in 1929. It comes with 90% old vine Carignan plus 10% of Syrah from the same terroir.
le Tigre Rose is a new rosé that we very much look forward to. Born with the characteristic of minerality of schist terroir, it's a rosé blended with 10% Mourvedre and 90% Grenache. It'll be a rosé that stands out in the AOP Faugeres!
Olivier Coste also has a line of traditional Mediterranean varietals from the Languedoc region of Southern France. It's named after his name! These include single varietal red wines of Cinsault, Old Star - Carignan Noir and Illegal-Mourvèdre, as well as RARE- Carignan Blanc, all of which are well established Mediterranean varietals.
Paying homage to antiquity of wine-making, an orange wine - Orange Star was introduced to great reception. Comes with 90% Muscat petits grains, 10% Grenache gris, Orange star is a white wine vinified like a red.
Thanks very much to Olivier Coste's determination to promote the wine heritage of his native land, the line of Olivier Coste are wines with characters! Have a try, they are premium fine wines from old vines, yet priced with great affordability for daily drinks.
Both vineyards of Château des Adouzes and Domaine Montrose are certified HVE 3, "Haute Valeur Environnementale level 3", the highest level of France's High Environmental Value certification. It’s a result of the vineyards' efforts towards virtuous agriculture: planting 3000 trees to preserve biodiversity, planting vineyard ground cover, mechanical soil work, pheromone dispensers, manual weeding, non-irrigated vines, etc. The certification complements with another recognition "Carbon Neutral" status for the winemaking. To limit the impact on the planet, Domaine Montrose not only reduces the CO2 emissions footprints to a minimum but offset the rest by financing ecological initiatives.
