Outside of Bourgogne, the famous grape variety Pinot Noir has been part of the Haute Pyrénées department (Château Montus) from 200 years. 'First replantation of the Pinot Noir in the South-west' by Alain Brumont in 1996. It took 10 years of wine making and attempts to find a style required by Alain Brumont: The Alain Brumont's Pinot Noir. Another way to taste a Pinot Noir, an unique style, between Bourgogne and Oregon according to the critic.
