Situated in Saint-Estephe, Chateau Montrose was originally part of the large Calon Segur estate back in the early 1800s and was only truly Chateau Montrose that we know today when Etienne Dumoulin fully planted the vineyards and built the Chateau that is still in use til this day with modern facilities and cellars. In a mere few years, by 1815, Chateau Montrose was on its way to being one of the top vineyards in the region and was the youngest of all the 1855 Classified Growths. Planted with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the vines have an average age of nearly 40 years, and some old Cabernet Sauvignon vines goes as far back as 1932.
Chateau Montrose is often found to be powerful, refined, masculine, elegant and complex in which the fruit has a richness that fills your mouth and coats your palate. It demands time in the cellar due to the large amount of tannins, concentration and structure and usually will reach their peak maturity around 15-50 years (or more) after the vintage. While young vintages require 2-4 hours decanting, old mature vintages may only need very little decanting time.

Photo available upon request 19pts Jancis Robinson Served blind initially. Subtle, dry but gorgeously smooth-textured with fully evolved tannins. Really fresh with great drive and energy - almost like a fully ripe Cabernet Franc. Savoury, leathery, firm yet round. Admirably long. No hurry to drink this.
