            [Notes2] => The 24 hectare estate covers 3 appellations in the Northern Rhône; St. Joseph, Condrieu and Côte-Rôtie. The grapes are grown on very steep, terraced vineyards on the right bank of the river and are protected from the prevailing westerly winds by the neighbouring Mont du Pilat. Minimum intervention is the viticultural approach and all the vineyard work has to be done manually due to the steep gradients. Les Hauts du Monteillet Blanc, a blend of Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier, Clairette and Chardonnay, comes from young vineyards on the estate and also from parcels that have been planted outside of the appellations` boundaries. The soils, depending on the plots are composed of granite, gneiss, schist and migmatite. Harvesting is done by hand.

                    [Notes4] =>  The Montez family live in a remote hamlet, high above the Rhône River in Chavanay, 40 km south of Lyon. The
domaine is sandwiched between the precipitous vineyard slopes that fall away to the Rhône River below and the
imposing Mont du Pilat which rises behind. The family has been making wine in the region for ten generations
although their rise to prominence really only began with Antoine Montez, the father of Stéphane, the current
bearer of the Montez legacy. Today the wines produced at the domaine range from IGP to St. Joseph and from Condrieu and Côte Rôtie.
Stéphane Montez’s wine making technique remains at heart very pragmatic with each vintage bringing separate challenges. Essentially
his reds are still made by harvesting as early in the day as possible, whole or partial de-stemming, lightly crushing a percentage of the
grapes when pumping them into tanks and then keeping them at around 16°C for up to 48 hours before allowing the fermentation to
begin. He has begun to use more stems when vinifying his top red wines as he believes they help bring an extra dimension to the wines
on the palate. He employs pump overs, déléstage and cap submersion as his primary extraction techniques but will still do occasional
punch downs when he deems fit.
All the reds are barrel aged with malolactic fermentation always taking place in barrel. The source of the barrels, their age and size,
vary, depending on the wine but he has an increasing liking for 600 litre demi-muids. In the right vintage he will do a twelve hour skin
maceration for his top whites in order to extract not only extra flavour but also some of the available proteins to aid yeast fermentation

                    [Notes4] =>  The Montez family live in a remote hamlet, high above the Rhône River in Chavanay, 40 km south of Lyon. The
domaine is sandwiched between the precipitous vineyard slopes that fall away to the Rhône River below and the
imposing Mont du Pilat which rises behind. The family has been making wine in the region for ten generations
although their rise to prominence really only began with Antoine Montez, the father of Stéphane, the current
bearer of the Montez legacy. Today the wines produced at the domaine range from IGP to St. Joseph and from Condrieu and Côte Rôtie.
Stéphane Montez’s wine making technique remains at heart very pragmatic with each vintage bringing separate challenges. Essentially
his reds are still made by harvesting as early in the day as possible, whole or partial de-stemming, lightly crushing a percentage of the
grapes when pumping them into tanks and then keeping them at around 16°C for up to 48 hours before allowing the fermentation to
begin. He has begun to use more stems when vinifying his top red wines as he believes they help bring an extra dimension to the wines
on the palate. He employs pump overs, déléstage and cap submersion as his primary extraction techniques but will still do occasional
punch downs when he deems fit.
All the reds are barrel aged with malolactic fermentation always taking place in barrel. The source of the barrels, their age and size,
vary, depending on the wine but he has an increasing liking for 600 litre demi-muids. In the right vintage he will do a twelve hour skin
maceration for his top whites in order to extract not only extra flavour but also some of the available proteins to aid yeast fermentation

About this product +

Producer >

Stéphane Montez is the tenth generation of his family to be making wine in Chavanay, a village in heart of the Condrieu appellation. Since taking over in 1997, he has significantly increased the domaine’s vineyard holdings to 24 hectares with key parcels in Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Saint Joseph. The vertiginous nature of the granite and mica-schist based land means that almost all aspects of the vineyard work need to be undertaken by hand and represent an incredible human effort.  In the winery, Stéphane likes to put his whites through skin contact before fermenting in wood whilst for his reds, he believes in de-stemming for certain cuvées and leaving a proportion of whole bunch in others. Only indigenous yeasts are used and temperatures for the reds are kept low and maceration times are extended. Ageing for the reds takes place in 228 litre barrels but increasingly so in 600 litre demi-muids.

Viticulture >

The 24 hectare estate covers 3 appellations in the Northern Rhône; St. Joseph, Condrieu and Côte-Rôtie. The grapes are grown on very steep, terraced vineyards on the right bank of the river and are protected from the prevailing westerly winds by the neighbouring Mont du Pilat. Minimum intervention is the viticultural approach and all the vineyard work has to be done manually due to the steep gradients. Les Hauts du Monteillet Blanc, a blend of Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier, Clairette and Chardonnay, comes from young vineyards on the estate and also from parcels that have been planted outside of the appellations` boundaries. The soils, depending on the plots are composed of granite, gneiss, schist and migmatite. Harvesting is done by hand.
