Beguiling scents of wilted roses, oolong tea, crushed rocks, wild sage, star anise and candied violets over a wonderfully pristine, well-defined core of crushed blackcurrants, black raspberries and kirsch plus wafts of pencil lead and wood smoke. The taut, muscular, medium to full-bodied palate straddles jaw-dropping intensity and finesse superbly, featuring a solid backbone of ripe tannins and giving a firm frame right through the incredibly long, exquisitely nuanced finish.

A Second Classified Growth of 1855, Château Montrose is one of the essential properties in the famous Saint-Estèphe appellation, which is located on the Left Bank in the Bordeaux region. With more than two centuries of history, Château Montrose takes its name from the colour of the heather that covers the Château’s moorlands.
Spread over an area of 95 hectares, the Château Montrose vineyard has the unusual feature of being one single area that consists of a mosaic of terroirs. It has a unique location on a complex geological formation that is millions of years old with a combination of soils. They consist of gravel with sand mixed in on the surface, and a clay-rich subsoil that is ideal for preserving the vines' water resources.
With an exceptional terroir, the typical style of the Saint-Estèphe appellation distinguishes the wines of Château Montrose. They are powerful, and their youth is marked by the signature of Cabernet Sauvignon. As they age over time, they develop a bouquet of rare complexity. As sign of excellence among the Top Ranked Growths, they combine finesse and elegance with structure and material, which guarantee exceptional cellaring potential.
Produced in a vintage with extreme weather, Chateau Montrose 2016 is a Saint-Estephe showered in accolades. The hot summer, dry until September helped the grapes reach maturity. The grape varieties planted are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Harvest took place under a radiant sun from September 23rd to October 14th. This year a more precise selection made it possible to highlight certain plots.
