Voted best French winemaker and, at the international level, the producer of one of the ten finest wines in the world, Alain Brumont has re-established old terroirs that had been abandoned for nearly 50 years.
Alain Brumont offers the best interpretation of Gascony: a wine that can accompany every moment and event in life. They are called Château Montus, which has become an international icon, and Château Bouscassé, the Madiran of the 18th century in its purest tradition. Two unique expressions of four interrelated factors: the terroir, a grape variety, an environment and a man’s knowledge and ability.
“The wines of Alain Brumont are at the same level as Château Latour and the greatest wines in the world”. Alain Brumont is, in the world of wines “A bull fighter”. -Steven Spurrier
“These are unreal wines that are purely made, remarkably rich hand so completed promising that they cannot be ignored.” -Robert Parker
“Unbelievable Terroirs … monumental wines”. “The Petrus of the South West. Madiran has rediscovered its original varietal and its roots: those of an ageing wine capable of competing with the best Bordeaux wines. La Tyre is of equal standing as Vega Sicilia-Pingus”. -Bettane & Desseauve
“The wines of Château Montus and Château Bouscassé are classified among the ten icons of Southern France, next to Ausone, Cheval Blanc, Petrus, Haut-Brion, Lafite-Rothschild, Latour, Margaux, Mouton Rothschild, Yquem.” -Andrew Jefford, “The New France”
