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.

Bright, deep ruby-red. Drop-dead gorgeous nose offers cassis, mineral and candied violet aromas of great depth. Enters the mouth sweet, suave, and dense, showing utterly seamless, highly complex flavors of dark berries, underbrush, minerals and cedar. For a wine with such amazing depth of flavor, this comes across as almost weightless. Though it displays the upfront fruity charm of the 2009 vintage, this is a complex, rich monster that will prove extremely ageworthy. One of the wines of the vintage, and the best young Montrose I've yet tasted. (ID)
