Notes
Good red-ruby color. Ripe, fairly deep aromas of currant, raspberry, smoke, leather, earth and nutty oak. Lush texture given shape by ripe acids. Faint note of black olive. Quite aromatic in the mouth. Finishes juicy, fresh and persistent. Very good for the vintage.

Château Montrose

Château Montrose

Established as a Second Growth in the 1855 classification, Château Montrose enjoys an exceptional geographical situation in Saint-Estèphe, facing the Gironde estuary. Its 95-hectare (235-acre) vineyard benefits from the moderating influence of the vast water mass nearby during the very hot summers and harsh winters. The vineyard is in a single sweep, a rare and priceless advantage in the region. The soil, consisting of deep gravel over clay, favours natural drainage and ensures the vines benefit from a slow and regular water supply from the water reserves in the subsoil.

An extensive renovation program with very strict environmental objectives has been carried out at the estate since it was acquired by Martin and Olivier Bouygues in 2006, reflecting the new owners’ determination to perpetuate the quality of the wine and make Château Montrose an exemplary model of skilled wine-making and sustainable development.

Under the direction of Hervé Berland since 2012, the estate has 68 employees in the vineyard and winery, all of whom share the same philosophy: respect for the terroir and a constant quest for excellence. That philosophy is manifested in meticulous vineyard practices, precise parcel selection and use of only the best grapes to make the premium wine, Château Montrose.

The other lesser-quality grapes are used to make the second wine, La Dame de Montrose, and the third wine, Le Saint-Estèphe de Montrose.
