Something about Chateau Montrose
A Second Classified Growth of 1855, Château Montrose is one of the essential properties in the famous Saint-Estèphe appellation, which is located on the Left Bank in the Bordeaux region. With more than two centuries of history, Château Montrose takes its name from the colour of the heather that covers the Château’s moorlands.
Spread over an area of 95 hectares, the Château Montrose vineyard has the unusual feature of being one single area that consists of a mosaic of terroirs. It has a unique location on a complex geological formation that is millions of years old with a combination of soils. They consist of gravel with sand mixed in on the surface, and a clay-rich subsoil that is ideal for preserving the vines’ water resources.
With an exceptional terroir, the typical style of the Saint-Estèphe appellation distinguishes the wines of Château Montrose. They are powerful, and their youth is marked by the signature of Cabernet Sauvignon. As they age over time, they develop a bouquet of rare complexity. As sign of excellence among the Top Ranked Growths, they combine finesse and elegance with structure and material, which guarantee exceptional cellaring potential.

A candidate for a perfect score, the 2003 Montrose has been a superstar since the first time I tasted it in barrel. Showing no signs of weakening, it is an amazing wine from this fabulous terroir. It boasts a deep blue/purple color as well as a stunning perfume of blueberries, black currants, blackberries, licorice and camphor. Dense, full-bodied and rich with an unctuous texture, well-integrated, melted tannins, and a long, heady finish, this big, brawny, super-intense, gorgeous 2003 is just beginning to enter its plateau of full maturity. It should remain there for at least two decades. Drink: 2014-2034
The Montrose '03 puts the Calon-Segur in the shade with tightly coiled earthy black fruit, briary, graphite, hot steaming espresso and Provencal herbs that are all beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with firm but fine ripe tannins, a crisp seam of acidity and wonderful focus on the multi-layered finish. It represents a long-term Montrose for sure - enormous persistency and grip on the aftertaste. This is a barnstorming Saint Estephe! Tasted March 2013.
Aromas of blackberry, toasted oak, spice and tobacco. Loads of plum. Dark in colour. Builds on the palate.
Dense and rich and with lots of vibration. Velvety. Good triumph over the vintage character. (Average group score: 17.6)
