Description :

The enormous 2003 Montrose is built along the lines of the 1989 rather than the 1990. It boasts a dense black/purple color in addition to an extraordinary bouquet of scorched earth, blackberries, and cassis, fabulous purity, a skyscraper-like texture, and substantial tannin in the finish

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
"This is considered to be among the greatest vintages ever made in Montrose, right up with the 1929, 1945, 1947, 1959, 1961, 1989, 1990 and 2009. Harvest was October 15 to 17. The wine has really come on since I last tasted it, and it needs at least another 10 years of cellaring. The blend was 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The wine is opaque black/blue, with an incredible nose of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, with hints of incense, licorice, and acacia flowers. Tannins are incredibly sweet and very present. The wine is full-bodied, even massive, with great purity, depth and a finish that goes on close to a minute. This is a 50- to 75-year-old wine that will repay handsomely those with good aging genes. (Note: The Chateau Montrose website gives an aging potential of 2020-2100.)"
