Château Montrose, 2ème Cru Classé, St Estèphe, 2022

Tasting Note:

Following the sensational Dame de Montrose, we had lofty expectations for the grand vin, and we were not to be disappointed. This Bouygues owned chateau is now under the leadership of Pierre Graffeuille, formally of Leoville Las Cases. This is a step up. Brooding, rather introverted aromatically, with just hints of mint, sage and a well of dark black fruit. Monolithic, with a viscous texture and huge density, this broad-shouldered Montrose is mighty impressive with layers of mineral infused fruit. Although massive, there's a fluidity and tension here, and something quite flashy too, but not excessive; it carries the immense core of fruit with aplomb, encased in an impressive tannic structure, which suggests a long and distinguished future ahead. Undoubtedly a multidimensional Montrose of precision and detail, there's an assurance to the beautifully woven tannins. A real vin de garde of immense proportions and pitch perfect balance. Tremendous! 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.
