Wine Region: Bordeaux - France
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
Tasting notes: The wine has a crimson tint. Spice and ripe fruit aromas mingle on the discreet and elegant nose. The attack is fresh, elegant and silky, underpinned by an attractive tannic structure, and the mid-palate very full, well-rounded and silky, leading into a long finish lifted by touches of liquorice.
About the winery:
A Second Classified Growth of 1855, Chateau Montrose is one of the essential properties in the famous Saint-Estephe appellation, which is located on the Left Bank in the Bordeaux region. With more than two centuries of history, Chateau Montrose takes its name from the colour of the heather that covers the Chateau's moorlands.
Spread over an area of 95 hectares, the Chateau Montrose vineyard has the unusual feature of being one single area that consists of a mosaic of terroirs. It has a unique location on a complex geological formation that is millions of years old with a combination of soils. They consist of gravel with sand mixed in on the surface, and a clay-rich subsoil that is ideal for preserving the vines' water resources.
