Marks and reviews
Owned by the brothers Martin and Olivier Bouygues since 2006, Chateau Montrose is an iconic reference in the Saint-Estephe appellation. This Second Cru Classe in 1855 watches over one of the most beautiful terroirs in the Medoc wine region. Today, as in the past, Chateau Montrose stands out due to the quality of its wines, its style and its distinctiveness, making this property a key estate with a worldwide reputation.
Situated in an exceptional location, considered as one of the greatest terroirs in the Bordeaux region, Chateau Montrose's vineyard covers 95 hectares of vines. This vast single block vineyard is a rarity on a terroir regarded as an "elite core". Located not far from the Gironde estuary, the Chateau Montrose vineyard is planted on gravel terraces mixed with sand on the surface, while the subsoil is clayey.
Chateau Montrose 2010 comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (53%), Merlot (37%), Cabernet Franc (9%) and Petit Verdot (1%).
Dense and deep, the color is a beautiful black with ruby highlights.
Complex, this wine mixes mocha and violet fragrances with fruity notes (blackcurrant, raspberry).
Rich and supple, the palate combines fruity aromas (blackcurrant, morello cherry, redcurrant) and delicious notes of cocoa. Precise and long, this wine is seducing due to its richness and balance. The finish reveals fine tannins and a great precision.
This Chateau Montrose 2010 can be kept in the cellar until around 2070, which will enable it to reveal its full aromatic range.
