2013 Saint-Estephe, 2. Cru Classe, Bordeaux

The Chateau Montrose vineyard stretches over 95 hectares, around the castle, cellar and farm building. This 2013 Saint-Estephe is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot.
The wine reveals a beautiful limpid and bright ruby colour. Although the nose is quite closed, it is fresh and minty. The former is marked by raspberry notes enhanced by more grilled, toasted aromas, with a light hint of caramel. On the palate, the 2013 Chateau Montrose offers a clear and bold attack. The mid-palate is forward and balanced, and develops a good length revealing liquorice notes. The tannins are silky and elegant.

Parker : 90 / 100
Wine Spectator : 92 / 100
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.
