It was in 2006 that the Bouygues family acquired Chateau Montrose. Founded in 1815 and situated on one of the most beautiful terroirs of the Medoc, overlooking the estuary, Chateau Montrose is an iconic reference of the Saint-Estephe appellation.
The box set
To celebrate the Bicentenary of Chateau Montrose, the property has unveiled an exceptional box set produced in 200 copies only. This rare object, tailor-made and handcrafted, highlights the precise work of the estate’s technical teams in the development of the wines, from the vineyard to the cellar. This exceptional set contains a trilogy of vintages that have helped write the history of Bordeaux: 2014, 2015 and 2016, presented in a unique and very rare 200 cl format. Boasting an immense aging potential and belonging to the "Grands Classiques" of Chateau Montrose, these vintages selected by the property reflect the style of Chateau Montrose in the greatest vintages. The Chateau Montrose 2014 is distinguished by its "very Bordeaux" style : a freshness, an aromatic power, a purity, a structure and a perfect balance. The "timeless" 2015 vintage seduces with its charm and precision, its velvety structure and silky tannins and its immediate accessibility. Finally, the "incomparable" 2016 vintage dazzles with its power and elegance. This legendary Bordeaux vintage beams forth a pure expression of the Chateau Montrose terroir.
With its brown hue and silvery reflections emphasizing the gorgeous quality of the wood, the Bicentennial Box Set by Chateau Montrose pays homage to the unique terroir at the heart of this iconic Saint-Estephe estate, shaping its wines vintage after vintage. Like a "cabinet of curiosities", this rare box set is truly an invitation to celebrate, transforming to reveal a cigar box, a book of stories about the estate and several different games perfect for sharing.
The purchase of a Bicentenary Box Set by Chateau Montrose is a truly unique experience. The recipient will also receive an invitation for a private stay at Chateau Montrose for 4 people, who will be welcomed by the Management of the Estate. This is a rare and exceptional experience that will allow Bordeaux lovers to enjoy a full immersion into the world of Chateau Montrose.
