    A very classy Saint-Estephe with brilliant aromas

    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 cedarblackcurrant, 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.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Montrose is a little youthfully shy to begin, but with coaxing, it unfurls to reveal the most beguiling scents of wilted roses, oolong tea, crushed rocks, wild sage, star anise and candied violets over a wonderfully pristine, well-defined core of crushed blackcurrants, black raspberries and kirsch plus wafts of pencil lead and wood smoke. The taut, muscular, medium to full-bodied palate straddles jaw-dropping intensity and finesse superbly, featuring a solid backbone of ripe tannins and giving a firm frame right through the incredibly long, exquisitely nuanced finish.
