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

Wine Spectator : 97-100 points
"Big and structured, delivering wild aromas of Indian spices, crushed berry, sweet tobacco and coffee. Full-bodied, with loads of velvety, chewy tannins and a long spicy finish. The château says this is like the 1990, but I think it could be even better." (2011)

Robert Parker : 100 points
"A colossal effort, the 2009 Montrose represents a hypothetical blend of the monumental duo of 1989 and 1990 combined with the phenomenal 2003. With 13.7% alcohol (an all-time high at Montrose), it is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and the rest tiny quantities of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Some structure and minerality can be detected in the background, but the overall impression is one of massive blackberry, black currant and mulberry fruit intermixed with forest floor, damp earth, crushed rocks and a hint of spring flowers. Full-bodied with sweet but abundant tannin, Jean-Bernard Delmas believes this is the greatest wine he has made during his short tenure at Montrose since retiring from Haut-Brion. This wine will undoubtedly shut down for a decade, then unleash its power, glory and potential perfection. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2050+." (2011)
