Château Montaiguillon is a family-run property of twenty-eight hectares, and has since 1949 been in the hands of the Amart family; third generation Chantal Amart is currently in charge. The vineyard is a single plot that borders both Saint-Emilion and Pomerol. Soil is clay-limestone and the exposure is to the south, so the vines get more sun than many of the flatter surrounding vineyards. Vines are an average of forty years old.
