Aromas of leather, underground, truffle and violet. Complex on the palate, with notes of leather and mocha. This wine is elegant, slightly evolved, with a neat and straight attack. Light mid-palate. Beautiful finish on tight tannins.
A true classic expression of terroir and vintage, this has a lovely bouquet of cassis, black currant, damp earth, tobacco and cedar spice. Fine grained tannins and balanced acidity underpin its maturing fruit core and tertiary flavours along its fleshy texture. Still on its ascent but very close to its apex.
Pale dark ruby color and ruby rims. First nose is quite rich with mainly earthy notes, accompanied by hints of licorice and strong chocolate tones. Bit tannic but a meaty, bold palate with excessive long finish. Raw almond tones are traceable on palate. Sweet plummy tones appear on nose in time. Drink now until 2045.
History of Montrose
The story of Montrose, written by 3 families of owners over two centuries, is a reflection of their spirit, marked by their pursuit of excellence and by legendary vintages. As pioneers in the Médoc, visionary builders and astute managers, they tended and got the best out of its unique terroir. It is they who laid the foundations to which Montrose now owes its image and its unique place in the world of great wines.
Succeeding three generations of the Charmolüe family, Martin and Olivier Bouygues acquired Château Montrose in 2006. “The past deserves great respect. We will modernise if that is good for the quality of the wine and the environment, but we respect history. ” – Martin Bouygues
