Montrose 2017

Montrose

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 98.0

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.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The 2017 Montrose is composed of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet in color, it skips out of the glass with bright, vibrant, and wonderfully pure notes of kirsch, redcurrant jelly, fresh blackcurrants, and black raspberries, leading to a fragrant undercurrent of lilacs, licorice, underbrush, and allspice. The medium-bodied palate is so bright and elegant, with jaw-dropping intensity and firm, fine-grained tannins, finishing with impressive length and energy.

Tasted blind. Deep ruby colour. Good fleshy red fruit and some cassis on the nose with vanilla bean. Fruit and tannin together in a smoky, rich structure. Increasingly muscular but matched by an impressive core of brambly fruit and hints of sweet spice. Long and fine on the finish. Will need a little time. (TP)
