About Chateau Montrose
Long regarded as possessing one of the finest terroirs in the Bordeaux region, right in the heart of the Saint-Estèphe appellation, Chateau Montrose has been on fire since vintage 1989, and especially since 2000.
91(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2005
($38-$50) Moderately saturated ruby-red. Expressive aromas of currant, black cherry, leather, mocha, game, black olive and minerals. Suave, seamless claret with a firm edge of acidity. More harmonious now than it was just prior to the bottling last June, but still rather closed and in need of a decade of cellaring. But this is not really austere in the way it might have been 15 years ago. A very minerally vintage of Montrose, with very good rather than outstanding density. Quite complex on the firmly tannic finish, throwing off notes of minerals, game, flowers and bitter chocolate.
