The Cellar Master's philosophy

Damien Michel

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.

'The everyday Grand Cru' 

Behind the wines of Montlobre hides BLB Vignobles, a family business 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 to the micro-climate
  • Integrated farming respectful of the environment
  • Wait for optimal ripeness of the grapes
  • Promote synergies between vines and biodiversity
