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 fi rst 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.

Tasting Notes

Montrose escaped the frost in 2021 and yields came in at a respectable 38hl/ha, with 40% of the crop selected for the Grand Vin. The bouquet offers a stunning purity and precision, with a wonderful freshness of fruit. The palate is deep and profound, laden with deep blackcurrant fruit and smouldering forest floor characters. There are notes of pencil shavings and the tannins are finely tuned. A wonderful aristocratic wine.

Vinification

Yields of 38hl/ha, the Grand Vin is aged in 55% new oak barrels
