“I love the aromas of dried citrus and black berries that are extended by a balanced body, silky tannins and a tasty and subtle finish.

The texture of this wine is extremely attractive. To drink now or to keep.”

History of Chateau Monlot

The blonde beautiful stone building nestled in the heart of the Saint-Emilion vineyard, Château Monlot has a history of four hundred years, originating from 17th century. Built on the land of King Louis XIII, the house was passed on to the Countess de Guerchy and her brother, the Marquis de Beuvron, linking it to the Seigneurie de Capet. It was then owned by the Taillade families in 1763, then Ichon 1803, who chose to name it <<My Lot>>.

Years later, the ownership of Chateau Monlot was owned by international singer and actress Zhao Wei. Zhao Wei’s desire and ambition to produce excellent wines convinced two renowned personalities in the wine world. The agricultural engineer Claude Bourguignon and the oenologist Jean-Claude Berrouet who bring their precious advice and their experiences in order to create exceptional wines.

Château Monlot symbolizes the meeting of cultures that are certainly diferent but whose destinies meet and merge in a single passion. After 5 years of intense work, we now wish to celebrate the rebirth of Chateau Monlot, which marks the beginning of a new era for our wines, said Zhao Wei.
