In the reign of Louis XIII, in 1638, a certain Jean de Moytié, Counsellor of the Bordeaux parliament and a noble bourgeois of the town, owned a beautifully sloped gravelly vineyard near the River. This place, as was the tradition, was named after its owner and thus became the “Mont-Moytié.” Historically, the production of Mont-Moytié was among the first Médoc wines, along with the “Château de Margaux”, the “Tour de Saint-Lambert” or the “Château de La Fitte” in Pauillac and the “Château de Calon”, in Saint-Estèphe, which were all established before the period of civil war known as La Fronde (1648-1653.) These were the first estates to appear in the Médoc parishes, which were later to become commune appellations. Read less

Tasted January 2008: In 1997 this was not an expensive wine (the equivalent of ca. 15 Euros, in French supermarkets). It is a success for the vintage: good colour with mature rim. While the taste is good, rather elegant but a bit foursquare, the true class of this wine is to be found in the bouquet: simply fabulous, refined and deep; for this bouquet alone the wine deserves a 4 star rating. In the aftertaste a touch of dry tannins and not enough substance to match the skeleton. Very typical for a 1994 grand cru classé from Bordeaux: excellent bouquet, good taste and good to mediocre finish. Drink up before 2010!
