DOMAINE DE MONTEILS
Domaine de Monteils stands at the gateway to the Sauternes region, in the parish of Preignac, one of the 5 villages (Sauternes, Bommes, Fargues, Preignac and Barsac) that have the privilege to claim the AOC Sauternes.
The domaine was established in the village of Preignac in 1861 by Daniel Fiton. During the 1960s, Jean-Claude Cousin followed after his grand parents' footsteps and developed the domaine. Today, Jean-Claude’s daughter Marie-Christine and her husband Jean-Paul Fourcaud manage the domaine.
Hand harvested and blended from the best triage. Fermented and aged for 12 months in oak barrels followed by 12-24 months in closed tank without filtration.
