Produced in a vintage with extreme weather, Chateau Montrose 2016 is a Saint-Estephe showered in accolades. The hot summer, dry until September helped the grapes reach maturity. The grape varieties planted are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Harvest took place under a radiant sun from September 23rd to October 14th. This year a more precise selection made it possible to highlight certain plots.
Chateau Montrose 2016 is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. The color is dark and dense, almost ink-like. The nose is rich and complex with aromas of cedar, blackcurrant, crushed blackberries and a light note of licorice. An extremely fresh aromatic profile. The mouth is ample and rich with incredibly smooth tannins. This Montrose is very refined and elegant. It has a remarkable length and finish. This majestic Montrose is fresh with a beautiful potential for aging.
