The 2022 vintage will experience a relatively mild winter with water shortages over the first three months of the year. May and June were dry months, despite a hailstorm at the end of June, which had a limited impact on the vineyard. The beginning of summer remains extremely dry, with temperatures above average and 4 major heat waves between June and August. The first glassberries appear on July 30. Based on the experience of the 2018 wine year, which was particularly dry and sunny in Bordeaux, the team is working to determine the start date of the harvest as accurately as possible. The peak of ripeness of Merlots is indeed limited and is essential to maintain a certain freshness and tension in the wines. The Cabernet, on the other hand, has the ability to withstand greater extremes of conditions, especially on the Montrose terroir. On September 2, the first Merlots were collected, the Cabernets followed one by one, others perfectly and the harvest ended on September 22 with vineyard in perfect sanitary condition. The grapes are naturally rich and concentrated.
2022 certainly marks the decade with a radiant vintage that allows the full power and resilience of Montrose terroir to be expressed.

The Montrose 2022 is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The first nose is surprisingly open, intense, complex and frank. We find subtle aromas of jasmine and Morello cherries. On the breath, menthol-like, pomaded notes emerge, followed by aromas of blond tobacco, spices (pepper), baskets of red fruits (blackberries). In the mouth the attack is frank, fresh and invigorating. The mouth widens very quickly in the middle and becomes soft and salty. The tannin structure is powerful but protected in a velvet glove. The persistent finale never diminishes in intensity, tirelessly playing the same precise, singular score. The Vintage 2022 is the expression of Montrose's vibrant energy harmoniously tamed.

FACT: Under the tab: Attachment you will find the official fact sheet and we will send it to you digitally when you order this wine. It is also worth mentioning that we purchase the (Bordeaux) wines directly and never purchase them through intermediaries because we do not know which journeys the wine has made and how it has been treated. The wines come from the cellars of the Chateau directly to our conditioned Warehouse in Dordrecht where all our wines are stored.
