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.
The 2014 Côte Rôtie is medium bodied with lots of polished tannins and savoury tones of leather, dried herbs blended with currant flavours. This wine promises to last for 10-12 years. Very complex wine with great finesse.
