Why Buy Me
Christophe Semaska, a former accountant, bought Château de Montlys in Côte Rôtie in 1988. After a decade of neglect, he has replanted the vines and expanded the vineyard. The production is very small and the quality very high.
Lots of luscious black fruit balances well with the sweet oak aromas. Firm tannins with rich cherry fruit flavours, a meaty character and a full body. Very impressive, elegant example of a Côte Rôtie.
