Château Montrose

Montrose is one of the great traditional names of Bordeaux, always sought-after by En Primeur fans. It was bought in 2006 by the Bouygues family and in recent years an astonishing investment programme has been carried out at the château. Now under the stewardship of Herve Berland, formerly at Mouton Rothschild, this château. continues to compete at the very highest level. With only 37% of the crop used in this year’s first wine at this château, only the very best fruit has been included in the blend. It is an outstanding result and undoubtedly amongst the finest in the commune, if not the vintage.

This vintage saw 37% of production used in the Grand Vin with a higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, the majority of the Merlot being used for the second wine. Cropped at 47hl/ha this Montrose is another classic, structured offering, multilayered with intense, tight cassis fruit, bags of energy, graphite, cracked pepper and a little cedar. Refined and fresh, this is a very focused wine that will certainly meet its potential.
Enjoy with a classic beef wellington.
The Grand Vin is made up of 37% of the estate's production in 2017 and aged in 60% new oak
