Château Montrose 2008

Regular rainy episodes and very mild temperatures characterize the year 2008 during which we distinguish all the same some hot and sunny episodes, especially at the beginning of flowering (mid-June) and the veraison (end-July)

Once again this year, Montrose's unique terroir has helped fight against pest pressure, thanks to the draining capacities of its soils of serious associated with the permanent air current that sweeps and dries the vineyard
The happy consequence of this collaboration between the benefits of the terroir and the work of man (prophylactic measures and work in green) is the quality of the manna at the approach of maturity; maturity that, from the beginning of September, we could wait with serentié, in order to harvest a raw material of quality
Harvest and vinification The macerations lasted 18 to 21 days.

É completamente opaco, roxo escuro, muito maduro no nariz e com alto extrato. Com uma acidez com um equilíbrio adorável, é na verdade um vinho bastante elegante. Feito a partir de 65% Cabernet Sauvignon e 29% Merlot.

Château Montrose 2008

Château Montrose produces wines of outstanding quality.
 Its vineyards, planted on a poor gravel soil ferruginous forcing the vines to root deeply, produces wines of incredible concentration.
 The estate is now managed by Jean-Bernard Delmas, who previously exercised his talents to Château Haut-Brion.

  Wine Château Montrose is one of the jewels of the appellation. A deep color, almost opaque, announces a highly concentrated in multiple shades nose. In the mouth the wine is particularly strong with a complexity that only time can reveal in all its dimensions. This concentrated wine is very long aging.

Reviews about Château Montrose 2011



This Second Classified Saint-Estèphe is one of the references in this prestigious appellation.
With the hand of master Jean-Bernard Delmas Castle asserts itself in a precise and elegant style.
The 2011 vintage is characterized by a garnet-colored dress.
His nose is expressive with fruity aromas, spicy smells of mocha and licorice.
His mouth is rich, powerful and accurate with time. It is dense, with imposing tight and velvety tannins. It also elongated and éclatant.Boire or keep: 2023 - 2042
PAIRING: Hare stew of ceps

Montrose Saint-Estèphe 2016
I thought the Montrose Saint-Estèphe would be perfect for a romantic evening.
The red and violet edges were visible for me. Notes of strawberry on the nose. I felt it alive and fresh.
We didn't pair it well, but the wine was good.

This red wine is cherry with brown edges. Smell like nuts, like it. It tasted like licorice.
We didn't pair it well, but the wine was good.
A red to drink with that special person.

It was given to us in a wine tasting stand of red.
Very light flavour. Nice aromas of blackberries in this Petit Verdot. It was harsh in the mouth for a Saint-Estèphe.
We had it as an accompaniment to the main course.
