The vines are planted in Bégadan village: north-west of Bordeaux, between Atlantic Ocean and Gironde estuary. As the estate is settled between 2 large mass of water, the vineyards get the positive influence on moderating all temperature fluctuations.
Process: Wine made in stainless steel vats. 3 to 4 weeks fermentation with 2 daily pumping over for an optimum extraction of the colour. 20 months maturing including 6 months in wooden barrels. (source: https://www.wineconnection.com.sg/home/657-chateau-le-monge.html
