The result of rigorous selection at each stage of production, in both the vineyard and the winery, this great, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon wine is typical of the Saint-Estèphe appellation. Structured and tannic but with all the elegance and refinement of a Grand Cru Classé, with time it develops a delicate and complex bouquet.

The wines have considerable ageing potential and are exceptionally long-lived. Certain vintages (1921, 1929, 1982, 1990, 2009) are considered legendary.

Matured for 18 months in 60% new French oak barrels, the premium wine accounts from 35 to 40% of the total production of Château Montrose.

Winemaker Notes

Martin and Olivier Bouygues

Château Montrose

by Martin and Olivier Bouygues
Terroir is central to everything at Montrose. It needs to be treated with respect, day after day, in order to express all its diversity. Each individual contribution, in-house or from outside, aims for uncompromising excellence. At the end of the harvest, the vineyard manager and technical manager meet to plan the winter‘s work, such as uprooting, replanting and fertilisation. Pruning is decided according to the results of the previous vintage, because pruning affects not only the shape of the plant over time but also, and above all, the future yield of each vinestock. Year after year, the vinegrowers are constantly shaping the Montrose vineyard.
