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 2020 has received a whopping 99-100/100 points Antonio Galloni

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.
