The Cellar Master's philosophy
Damien Michel is the Wine Maker and Cellar Master behind Montlobre wines. He has gained experience in both hemispheres of the planet. After working as a young trainee for Château Mouton Rothschild in Pauillac, under the direction of Technical Director Patrick Léon, he also vinified in Chile, Australia and South Africa. Always curious and passionate, he also tasted and traded with the best winemakers in New Zealand, Argentina, Tuscany and California.
What's Good in Montlobre wines?
Our desire is to make the pleasure of responsible tasting accessible to everyone
The ‘everyday grand cru’
Behind the wines of Montlobre hides Maison Le Breton, a family winery committed to sustainable development. From the start, Damien Michel was entrusted with two missions: to make a better wine, vintage after vintage, and a better world, year after year. Each cuvée is hand crafted with the aim of having a positive impact on the social, environmental and economic performance of the family winery.
Here are the key points of Damien Michel's philosophy:
- Loyalty to the land and the micro-climate
- Integrated farming respectful of the environment
- Wait for the optimum ripeness of the grapes
- Promoting synergies between the vine and biodiversity
