About This Wine
The vineyard is in Saint-Estèphe, the northernmost of the great Médoc communes. The soil in Montrose's 168 acres (0.68 km2) consists of gravel and black sand with a subsoil of clay and marl. They are planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc.
Château Montrose produces two red wines: its eponymous grand vin, and a second wine named La Dame de Montrose. The 1970 vintage placed third among the ten California and French red wines at the historic Judgment of Paris wine competition, which was won by the Americans.
Montrose wines tend to be deeply tannic and during excellent vintages can take up to 20 years to mature.
The 1990, 2009, and 2010 vintages were rated 100 points by Robert M. Parker, Jr.
Chateau Montrose at its best is powerful, refined, masculine, elegant and complex. The fruit has a richness that fills your mouth and coats your palate. But the wines are also firm and tannic.
The wine of Chateau Montrose can age and evolve for decades. In fact, purchasers should know, that in the best vintages, the wine requires decades to develop. Chateau Montrose is seldom a wine that is fun to taste in its youth. It’s a very long, lived wine.
