Montagnac Cabernet Sauvignon is made by the co-operative Les Vignobles Montaganc located between Beziers and Montpellier in the Languedoc Roussillon. The co-operative was built in Montagnac in 1937 and the vineyards stretch from the banks of Thau Lagoon on the Mediterranean Sea to the foothills of the mountains by the River Herault.
The vines are grown in small parcels on old terraces on limestone and clay slopes and are pruned using the Cordon de Royat which means that a single spur is trained along a wire allowing for plenty of sunlight to ripen the grapes and greater control over yields. Vignobles Montagnac’s motto is “the terroir of the sea” as the warm breezes from the Mediterranean nurture their grapes.
This area is stunningly beautiful and the countryside is abundant in thyme, lavender, rosemary, sage, wild thyme and summer savory which all grow wild in the warm, limestone soils. Parsley, dill and fennel flourish in the cool, porous soils and the aromas envelop the vineyards with their scent and infuse the wines with hints of saffron, aniseed, cloves and juniper.
Montagnac Cabernet Sauvignon is a superb with food and pairs beautifully with grilled meats, particularly steak, duck, game, rich casseroles, Italian meat pasta dishes and Greek moussaka.
