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.

($140-$179; 13.2% alcohol) Good bright ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of plum, flint and nutty oak. Large-scaled, rich and explosive, offering impressive volume and a sensation of power. The ripeness here verges on syrupy and this lush, round wine may well need a decade to lose some of its baby fat and assume its adult shape. The big, ripe tannins coat the teeth.
