Respectively an engineer and an accountant, father and son Raymond and Jérôme Esteve purchased the Montfin property from its bankrupt owners in 2001, having fallen immediately in love with the estate's stunning setting on the lagoon of Peyriac-de-Mer. Construction of a state of the art winery quickly followed, and today the estate is managed full time by Jérôme.

Certified organic since 2009, beyond vineyard the estate is covered in bushes of garrigue and increasing plantings of olive and oak trees, with Jérôme aiming to increase his site's biodiversity, and some hope of the latter yielding truffles one day. The vineyard is almost entirely old vine, with plantings dating up to 80 years and producing intense, concentrated fruit.

60% Grenache Blanc, 20% Vermentino and 20% Roussanne

A textural white with gentle acid, characterised by complex fruits and mouthfeel.  Exotic aromatics of florals, apricot, mango and citrus, with palate continuing these themes, the mouthfeel full and with impressions of natural fruit tannin.  Fruit is balanced by some dried herbal notes and tiny lick of iodine-like minerality providing further complexity.  Great drinking on its own or will complement a wide range of foods, from grilled vegetables or fish to shellfish and even spicy dishes.
