Tasting Note:

Chateau Montrose reported a 'miraculous amount of sunshine' from the end of August right through until the harvest. '… the hydric stress resulting from these exceptional climatic conditions helped the grapes to ripen evenly'. Produced from 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot and accounting for 47% of the crop, this is another regal and utterly charming Montrose. Gorgeous aromas of plum liqueur, complex minerals, blackcurrant jam and rosemary emerge from the glass. The palate is beautifully poised and restrained, serious, multi-layered and vibrant with a polished, dense core of sweet fruit interspersed with hints of graphite, coal and dried flowers. This is a sumptuous, yet quite restrained Montrose brimming with clarity and noble flavours. Top Drawer!
