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
