Monrouby is a small village in the Languedoc, close to Pomérols, which is where the Baron de Badassière and the Vignes de l'Eglise wines are made. Winemaker Graeme Paul was impressed with the fruit from this village in 2011, so decided from then on to vinify several varieties separately.
The 2018 vintage in Languedoc started with a class winter, cold and rainy. Spring experienced two rare cold episodes which caused frost to set on the vineyard. However, May and June had heatwaves and some precipitation which encouraged vegetative growth and regrowth of the frozen parcels. The summer temperatures were high, but the vineyard did not suffer any water stress, thanks to the rain in winter and spring. Harvest took place from mid-August to mid-September.
