Château Montrose

Ch. Montrose is one the leading properties in St Estephe and makes undoubtedly some of the most concentrated, opulent, not to mention longest lived wines in Bordeaux.

A property that sits on gravel overlooking the Gironde estuary. Its plantings have a high amount of Merlot compared to its neighbours and this contributes to the style of the Chateau. When young the wines are rich, vivid with an abundance of fruit. As they mature they have almost ethereal flavours of cedar, tobacco and spice. 

We are delighted to offer a glorious collection of Ch. Montrose, all lying in the cellars at Seckford Wines. A host of great vintages such as 1989, 2000 & 2009 alongside some brilliant value years like 2004 & 2012. 
 
Please do let us know if we can tempt you with a case or two.

1989 Ch. Montrose, St Estephe

£4850 per 12 duty paid

100 Points (Wine Advocate)

For many years I have vehemently argued that the 1989 Montrose is a benchmark wine for the estate. Having tasted it several times over the last couple of months, I have never found a single occasion to alter that view. Tasted at the vertical in London, it continues to shine, having never lost any of its luster in recent years. It is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc that was picked from 11 to 28 September. Lucid in color, the aromatics do not hold back with vibrant blackberry, blueberry and black truffle, hints of sous-bois, all with sensational precision that few can match in this vintage (indeed, its precision lends it a veneer of modernity since "precision" is now more commonplace across Bordeaux). The palate is brilliantly balanced with filigree tannin. There is wonderful backbone here, extremely fresh and tensile, crystalline even with an exceptional detail, mineral-rich finish that lingers in the mouth. Difficult to fault, this might well be the greatest 1989 Montrose that I have tasted, and certainly wishing to take nothing away from the 1990 Montrose that I tasted alongside, the 1989 is now the one I would pick. Is this the greatest Saint Estèphe of the 1980s? I would put it within the top five Bordeaux of the 1980s. Could this be inching its way to perfection??? Tasted June 2016.
