Marks and reviews
Owned by brothers Martin and Olivier Bouygues since 2006, Château Montrose is an iconic reference of the Saint-Estèphe appellation. This Second Classified Growth of 1855 reigns over one of the most beautiful terroirs of the Médoc. In the past, as today, Château Montrose has stood out for the quality of its wines and a unique signature style that sets apart this world-renowned estate on Bordeaux's Left Bank.
With a surface area of 95 hectares, this vast single vineyard is a rarity on a terroir considered as an "elite nucleus". Located not far from the Gironde estuary and planted on terraces of gravel mixed with sand on the surface, while the subsoil is of a clayey nature, this exceptional terroir produces great Saint-Estèphe wines.
2019 was a very important vintage at Château Montrose, marked by the environmental approach undertaken by the team, the implementation of "green" cultivation practices out in the vineyards. This approach, coupled with the climatic conditions of the year led to a very successful harvest, which began on September 19 and ended on October 8. The harvest was carried out on a plot-by-plot basis, with grapes from the different lots vinified separately.
Cabernet Sauvignon (64%)
Cabernet Franc (5%)
Petit Verdot (1%).
The first tastings of the Château Montrose 2019 confirmed that 2019 is undoubtedly one of the best vintages of the estate. Merlot was present in the same proportion as in the blend of the 2009. Combining precision, concentration and beautifully ripe tannins, the Château Montrose 2019 continues to make history in the Saint-Estèphe appellation.
