Description

The aromatic intensity and finesse of a Saint-Estèphe red wine

The estate

Owned by the brothers, Martin and Olivier Bouygues, since 2006, Château Montrose is an iconic reference in the Saint-Estèphe appellation. This Second Cru Classé in 1855 watches over one of the most beautiful terroirs in the Médoc wine region. Today, as in the past, Château 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.

The vineyard

Situated in an exceptional location, considered as one of the greatest terroirs in the Bordeaux region, Château 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 Château Montrose vineyard produces fine Saint-Estèphe wines and is planted on gravel terraces mixed with sand on the surface, while the subsoil is clayey.

The vintage

The weather conditions during the year 2011 did not spare this Médoc vineyard. Snowfall during winter preceded a period of drought along with very high temperatures. Followed by an episode of hail that impacted the vineyard.

The vinification and ageing

Due to these extreme conditions, the vinification process received greater attention. The aim being to preserve the wine's freshness all while seeking a perfect balance between expressing the aromas and extracting supple and silky tannins.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (63%)

Merlot (22%)

Cabernet franc (12%)

Petit Verdot (3%)
