    Composed of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, harvested from September 17 to October 5, the 2018 Montrose has a very deep purple-black color and opens with tantalizing notes of crème de cassis, Black Forest cake, hoisin and mocha with nuances of molten licorice, fertile loam, cast iron pan and incense. Big, rich, full and powerful in the mouth, the voluptuous fruit has a rock-solid backbone of very firm, very ripe tannins to match with tons of freshness and an epically long, exotic spice finish. A magnificent monster of a Montrose!

  • Located in the heart of the Saint-Estephe appellation, Second Growth classified Chateau Montrose has been in the hands of the Charmoule family for over 100 years. The family has continued to follow age-old winemaking traditions of the Medoc with spectacular results. The vineyards also benefit from the mild microclimate created by the nearby Gironde estuary, which helps temper the climate, ensuring the grapes ripen under ideal conditions. Considered one of the top Saint-Estephe producers, Chateau Montrose is prized for its classic Claret style wines, big fruit and full structure. The wines are also known for their incredibly tannic nature, allowing them to stand up to years of aging. Chateau Montrose makes a second wine called La Dame de Montrose.
