Chateau Montrose is one of the leading wine properties of St.Estephe, and produces some of the longest-lived wines in the Medoc. Montrose had been owned by Jean-Louis Charmolue from 1962 until 2006, when it was sold to Martin and Olivier Bouygues. Montrose is classified as a Second Growth in Bordeaux 1855 classification.
Tasting note: It is rightly regarded as one of the rare successes of the beleaguered growing season, alongside Latour. It is clean in color with slight ageing on the rim. The nose is crisp and charming with red berry fruit, balsamic, sage, earthy, almost beetroot like scents that are very appealing. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, fresh and well focused. Whilst the growing season denuded Montrose of its weight and presence, there is harmony here and the foursquare finish will have classic appeal.
