Montrose 2014


Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 97.0

Known for its powerful, full-bodied claret, Château Montrose has continued to create acclaimed wines for the past couple of centuries. Only 800 metres from the Gironde estuary, Montrose benefits from an excellent microclimate that protects the vineyards against the frost. Their terroir comprises deep clay-gravel soils which enables the vines – which comprise Cabernet Sauvignon (c.60%), Merlot (c.32%), Cabernet Franc (c.6%) and Petit Verdot (c.2%) – to thrive. The resulting wine is one that is powerful and refined, yet elegant and complex. Firm and tannic, Montrose has superb ageing potential that with bottle maturation will continue to develop into a sublime and poetic claret.

The velvety texture of the fruit and the tannins seem to shine through here, even on the aromatics. Its one of the wines of the vintage and is showing beautifully after four years. Of course, its nowhere near ready to drink, but the tannins have an astonishingly vibrant, tactile quality against the palate. This is coupled with concentrated flavours of cassis, bilberry, charcoal, liquorice, deep woodsmoke and cedar. One for the cellar, and then some. 1% Petit Verdot finishes the blend. Harvested through until 16 October as with many of these St-Estèphes, given the luxury of the beautiful October weather.

One of the wines of the vintage in 2014, fascinating to check in on it now, and to compare it to the universally-lauded (but more expensive) 2016. This is confident, creamy, cassis and bilberry dark fruits, swirled through with liqourice, mint, black chocolate, espresso, slate. Extremely well handled, this walks the line, perfectly balanced, with St Estèphe character but Montrose breeding and depth. Hard to imagine finding a better 2014 today, and although this will clearly deepen and improve over the next decade, you can approach today with a good carafe. Harvest September 22 to October 16.
