Highly regarded throughout the 1800s, by the beginning of the 20th century Monbousquet had lost its renown and for several decades belonged to a succession of owners.
It was not until the end of the Second World War and the arrival of the Querre family in 1945 that the estate began to recover its former reputation. Daniel Querre, master winemaker and œnologist, dedicated 30 years of his life to rebuilding the vineyard, and his heirs continued his work until 1992.
