The result of rigorous selection at every stage of production, in both the vineyard and the winery, this large, mainly Cabernet Sauvignon wine is typical of the Saint-Estèphe appellation. Structured and with tannins, but with all the elegance and refinement of a Grand Cru Classé. Over time, the wine develops a delicate and complex bouquet. Composed of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and a dash of 1% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Montrose wine was allowed to mature in 60% new and 40% annual oak barrels where it aged for 18 months. stayed in. This grand cru represents 37% of the estate's total production. Deep garnet purple in colour, the nose takes some time to unfold before revealing an impressively flamboyant core of black cherry preserves, warm cassis and baked plums with hints of red currant jelly, dark chocolate, licorice, cardamom plus a soft touch of candied violets. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has fantastic intensity with a very elegant, modest weight, with super-ripe, fine-grained tannins and tons of freshness to round out a stunning array of beautiful black fruits. This is an incredibly stylish, poised and sophisticated Montrose!

The wine has significant aging potential and an exceptionally long shelf life. Certain vintages (1921, 1929, 1982, 1990, 2009) are considered legendary and the 2019 has one of the highest ratings ever with a drinking window up to 2065+

FACT: It is worth mentioning that we buy the (Bordeaux) wines directly and never purchase them through the middleman because we do not know all the journeys the wine has made and how it has been treated. The wines come from the cellars of the Chateau directly into our conditioned Warehouse in Dordrecht where all our wines are stored. If you come to pick it up, you will often also receive a nice discount.

Vineyard for 2019 Château Montrose Saint-Estèphe Grand Cru Classé

Château Montrose is one of the most prestigious Médoc chateaus. Especially since the wealthy brothers Martin and Olivier Bouygues bought the chateau in 2006 and started a rigorous 'makeover'. They tackled absolutely everything from vineyard to cellar. The team is also being strengthened, including with Hervé Berland, who says goodbye to his position as director at Château Mouton-Rothschild to lead this ambitious project. Quality has skyrocketed ever since and the last few vintages Château Montrose has consistently been among the very best wines in Bordeaux; a great achievement! Part of the major quality improvement is a 'parcelic' approach, in which the vineyard is divided into small pieces, each of which is assessed, vinified and raised separately. The selection options have increased enormously as a result. Such that, in addition to a first and second wine, a third wine has also seen the light.

Chateau Montrose makes powerful wines that have a long life ahead of them. Although very tannic, the elegance and especially intensity is memorable. This one of the very best St. Estèphe wines has the 2nd Grand Cru Class status but could easily compete in the highest 1st Cru class. Since the 1989 harvest, followed by a 100-point score by Robert Parker in 1990, Montrose has earned a worldwide reputation and ranks among the greatest Bordeaux.
