Description

Tasted blind. Fragrant and ripe at the same time. The build of this wine is not massive but the balance is charming. Lots of tannin buried beneath lots of ripe fruit. Very careful selection? Just a little scrawny on the end. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com (17)

Ch. Montrose is at the leading edge of low-impact winemaking in Bordeaux. For more than 15 years, the property has been improving biodiversity and vineyard health energy use – plus, all the CO2 from fermentation is captured and turned into bicarbonate of soda. 

Cahteau Montrose is one of the leading wine properties of Saint Estephe, and produces some of the longest-lived wines in the Medoc. Montrose had been owned by Jean Louis Charmolue from 1962 until 2006, when it was sold  to Martin and Olivier Bouygues, owner of the eponymously named construction firm Bouygues, is located in the east of the appellation, just north of the hamlet of Marbuzet, on a gravel knoll only 800 metres from the Gironde estuary. The proximity of the estuary ensures a microclimate that protects against frost, and the vines, which lie on deep clay-gravel soils, benefit from a south-easterly aspect.
