The 'classic' that witnesses the reputation of the family property. The Château Montlau is planted with the same noble vines since 1473. The winery owner Mr. Armand Schuster de Ballwil proudly looks on a 25ha of vineyards. It's representative of the early ripening Merlot with 3.2 in the foreground. Its sophisticated blending partner Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon in small amounts are harmoniously united in its assemblage. The culmination of the dedicated winemakers which of course is done entirely by tradition (hand harvesting). This History is reflected in the glass gracefully in deep ruby red with violet hues. It deliciously smell Cassis and Rose plants with pleasant notes of essential oils from fir and pine branches.
"The Merlot provides the meat for the full-bodied drops, the Cabernet Franc the scaffold."
