2011 Saint-Estephe 2e Cru Classe from Bordeaux

Medoc winemakers rose to the challenge and adapted to unusually compromising weather conditions. Chateau Montrose 2011 release is 63% Cabernet Sauvigon, 22% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot.

This vintage from Saint-Estèphe appellation shows a deep garnet hue. The nose exudes lightly aniseed currant with very delicate wood. The palate offers lovely length, medium-body, and red fruits that lead to a supple finish with ripe yet precise tannins. The high concentration of Cabernet Franc creates a supple structure.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at the château, the 2011 Montrose is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot picked between 2-27 September. The nose does not possess the exuberance of the 2008, a little conservative and lacking personality by comparison. It does repay aeration though and after some time, there are attractive cold stone/limestone notes that begin to emerge. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, grippy tannin. It is a solid Montrose, quite stout, perhaps not the greatest fun you will ever have with a Claret, yet with admirable depth on the lightly spiced, cedar-infused finish. Whilst I prefer the 2008 Montrose, the 2011 is a decent off-vintage that should offer 20 years of drinking pleasure. Tasted September 2016.
