Description :

The wine remains a blockbuster, an inky/ruby/purple-colored effort revealing stunning concentration, amazingly high glycerin, and abundant amounts of sweet black fruits intermixed with notions of earth and spice. It is a fleshy, full-bodied St.-Estephe with atypically high amounts of fatness and fruit extract,

Château Montrose

Château Montrose Grand Cru Classé Saint-Estèphe   The vineyard reached its present size of 65 hectares under the tenure of Dollfus, and these have a beautiful position on a slope running right down to the Gironde in the south-eastern corner of the Saint-Estèphe commune. As you travel north it is the last of the great gravel croupes which run alongside the Gironde and which have proved to be such perfect soils for the red grapes of Bordeaux.

Much deeper, of course, is the clay of St Estèphe. The vines here are 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. The mesoclimate is favourable, mainly because of the proximity of the Gironde, and the slope of the vineyard, generally allowing slightly earlier harvest here than elsewhere in the Médoc.

This is done manually, with a sorting before fermentation in stainless steel with up to thirty days maceration thereafter. The wines go into oak, 70% new for eighteen months for the grand vin, Chateau Montrose (typically 19 000 cases per annum), and 20% new for twelve months for the second wine, La Dame de Montrose (typically 9 000 cases per annum), named after Yvonne Charmolüe, who ran the estate from 1944 to 1960.


Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 100 points
"I have had the 1990 Montrose on four separate occasions over the last several months, and I have consistently rated it either 99 or 100. Three of the bottles came from my cellar, and one was tasted at the chateau. None of them revealed any brett, which is not the case with bottles that were exposed to heat, or had bad storage issues. The wine remains a blockbuster, an inky/ruby/purple-colored effort revealing stunning concentration, amazingly high glycerin, and abundant amounts of sweet black fruits intermixed with notions of earth and spice. It is a fleshy, full-bodied St.-Estephe with atypically high amounts of fatness and fruit extract, but it is settling down nicely and seems set for another 2-3 decades of longevity. Many have felt the 1989 Montrose is better, and it is getting closer to meriting a three digit score, but it remains more tannic and backward." (Feb 1997)

Stephen Tanzer : 95 points
"Full ruby-red. Wild, exotic aromas of crystallized redcurrant, leather, tobacco and minerals; distinctly exotic, even overripe. Then lush, sweet and opulent, with an atypically velvety texture for Montrose. But extremely young and structured, finishing with powerful tannins and great grip and length. Almost California-like in style; in Bordeaux, they’d refer to the fruit expression of this wine as "original," which is not necessarily high praise. Drink 2008 through 2030." (Aug 2002)

Wine Spectator : 94 points
"Dark in color with decadent aromas of ripe fruit, earth and amazing mint and spearmint undertones, yet there’s also an underlying meaty funkiness. Full-bodied, with layers of very ripe fruit and velvety tannins. Massive and caressing. A big, powerful wine. Like velvet.--Non-blind Château Montrose vertical. Drink now." (Aug 2006)

Bettane et Desseauve : 17,5/20
"Avec dix ans d’évolution, le nez, longtemps de type « écurie » est en train d’évoluer vers la rose, le musc et la truffe noire. Le corps et la texture du millésime sont eux aussi exotiques, par un moelleux accentué qui évoque les vins du Rhône, mais dont la volupté est indiscutable, tout comme la très longue persistance aromatique." (2009)
