Domaine Montrose

Domaine Montrose is situated in the South of France in the Languedoc, a few kilometers from Pézenas and the Mediterranean Sea. For nine generations, the estate has belonged to the Coste family.The Coste family started to make wines in the 16th century,  as evidenced by the underground tanks beneath the wine cellar. In 1701 the ancestor Joseph Alazard received the Three Lizards coat of arms. In homage to him, it adorns all of the Montrose bottles today.

 

More than just a winery, Montrose is an animated place of life and sharing. The ancestral savoir-faire and a commitment to each moment allow Montrose to create exceptional wines.

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:

MADE WITH LOVE, SINCE 1701

 

Both Salamandre and 1701 (to come) are the single estate productions exclusively available at Domaine Montrose. From grape planting to wine bottling, each step of winemaking entails the craftsmanship excellence of Domaine Montrose.  

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. Currently, le Tigre is listed in this store with another wine not in Singapore yet:

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 (to come) 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. 

Olivier Coste has a line of traditional Mediterranean varietals from the Languedoc region of Southern France. It's named after his name! We have selected two red wines of Carignan Noir and Illegal-Mourvèdre, both of which are famous Mediterranean varietal, as well as RARE- Carignan Blanc (to come). These are boutique single varietal wines made out of LOVE, thanks very much to Olivier Coste's determination to promote the wine heritage in his native land.  Have a try, they are fine wines priced with affordability as daily drinks for families.    

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 2000 trees to preserve biodiversity, planting vineyard groundcover, 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.

Find a wine you love. À ta santé - Cheers!
