An elegant and aromatic red wine from Saint-Estephe

The estate

Owned by the brothers Martin and Olivier Bouygues since 2006, Chateau Montrose is an iconic reference among fine Saint-Estephe wines. This 1855 Second Cru Classe watches over one of the most beautiful terroirs of the Medoc appellation. 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 woldwide reputation.

This vast single-block vineyard is a rarity on a terroir considered as an "elite core". Situated not far from the Gironde estuary, Chateau Montrose’s vineyard is planted on gravel terraces mixed with sand on the surface, while the subsoil is clayey.

Nose

Fresh and minty, the nose combines fruity (raspberry) and toasted fragrances with subtle notes of caramel.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2013 Montrose has an understated, lilting bouquet with blackberry and briary scents and dried rose petals, gaining more intensity as it opens over 2-3 minutes in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. It shows good weight in the mouth, quite linear and masculine (typical for Montrose) but there is respectable detail and mineralité coming through on the satisfying finish. Not a top tier Montrose, but then again, why would it be in this difficult vintage. It will still give pleasure over the next 12-15 years.
