The village of Montagne lies opposite the Saint-Emilion Appellation and shares its major characteristics. Less well known, its wines are wonderfully surprising. They are elegant, full-bodied and distinguished.
The Appellation's blend generally consists of Merlot (60% of vines planted) and Cabernet Franc (30%).
Cabernet Sauvignon, which is more difficult to cultivate due to its late ripening, is reserved for the "warmest" and best-exposed fields.
