“A magnificent monster of a Montrose!”
05 June 2019

Lisa Perrotti-Brown sums this up rather aptly - this is a monster of a Montrose, possibly the most concentrated and massive example we have ever tasted from this great second growth. It is a sort of hybrid of the massive 2010 and the ultra-refined, super-sleek, ethereal 2016. When we met with Hervé Berland in late January the team had just finished blending and there was an air of confidence that they had something very special on their hands. Their only regret was that yields were a paltry 25 hl/ha. This is a magnificent wine, possibly the most profound and long-term wine of the whole vintage. We were blown away by the concentration and the quite epic tannins – we were literally tasting this all the way to Cos d’Estournel. An absolutely sensational Montrose!

“Composed of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, harvested from September 17 to October 5, the 2018 Montrose has a very deep purple-black color and opens with tantalizing notes of crème de cassis, Black Forest cake, hoisin and mocha with nuances of molten licorice, fertile loam, cast iron pan and incense. Big, rich, full and powerful in the mouth, the voluptuous fruit has a rock-solid backbone of very firm, very ripe tannins to match with tons of freshness and an epically long, exotic spice finish. A magnificent monster of a Montrose! 96-98/100”. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, The Wine Advocate    Read More
