THE MONLOT BRAND

Monlot brand is the creation of Chinese star Zhao Wei. She has always been in love with Bordeaux terroir, and wanted to create a representative range of the various Bordeaux wine appellation, thus sharing wonderful discoveries with wine lovers. Due to the Monlot Brand, each brand of Monlot wine of the sub-appellation has a specific number and colour. The customer can differentiate the wines more easily.

Since 2012, it is with Jean-Claude Berrouet , Claude and Lydia Bourguignon exclusive consultants of Monlot n°1, 3 and 5, that ZhaoWei is doing everything possible to build with passion the Monlot range.

Since July 2017, Hubert de Boüard has taken over as consultant.
