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.

The deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Montrose opens with broody black fruits, menthol and anise notes with a core of cassis, blueberries and mulberries plus a touch of cedar chest. The medium-bodied mouth is firm and chewy with a good core of muscular fruit and a long, earthy finish. 2022 - 2042
The 2015 Montrose has a very intense bouquet of blackberry, raspberry coulis, iodine and violet scents that blossom in the glass, demonstrating more exuberance than (what transpired to be) the 2015 Meyney. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very well judged acidity, taut and linear with satisfying freshness and poise on the finish. Maybe this just has the edge over the Meyney. Superb. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.
Blueberry, black currant, fresh basil and lemon grass flavors. Full body, velvety tannins, clean finish. Spices. Depth.
