Awards Placed 5th overall, out of 100 wines tasted blind, at the 2003 Farr Vintners Blind Tasting held in October 2010.


Tasting Note This is one of the "Super Seconds". It is always a wine of lovely, clean, crisp, tannin flavour with new oak, tannin and fruit well matched. The 2003 is a perfect wine with ulmost purity, smooth and silky tannin, and has perfect balance.

Hedonist Gazette, May 2008 - "We next moved to the totally perfect 2003 Chateau Montrose, which was decanted well in advance. With the spring lamb and gateau of eggplant, it was another incredible wine and food marriage. I have had this wine sveral times in the past, but it always seemed totally shut down, and in need of a decade of cellaring. This dinner proved how aeration and the correct food can bring out the best, even in such a young, surreally concentrated wine. It is a quintessential Montrose, and does not reveal any of the pruny, baked characteristics that can afflict some of the wines of Graves, Pomerol, and St. Emilion from sandy gravelly soils. The clay soils of St. Estephe were the perfect antidote for the searing heat and drought of 2003. The result is a superb wine that should last 40-60 or more years. Score 100 - RP"

About the Winery Built in 1815, Chateau Montrose is one of the eminent estates in Saint Estephe with a magnificent view of the Gironde River. The property was owned by the Charmolue family from 1896 until 2006 and then sold to the Bouygues brothers, owner of the contruction firm Bouygues. This winery has made magnificent wines with many old vintages that have stood 50 or more years of cellaring.

The property consists of 68 hectares (168 acres) planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and just 2% Petit Verdot. Annual production 37,000 cases. The winery is now led by Jean Delmas, the one-time wine maker of Haut Brion.
