Winemaker's Notes

Beautiful dark and deep ruby color. On the nose, intense, powerful, and complex displays intermingled scents of red fruit, blackcurrant, spices and cedar. The perfect balance on the palate is a characteristic of a great classical Medoc; the attack is frank and powerful, full bodied with ripe, massive tannins, and good length.

Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon: 68%, Merlot: 29%, Cabernet franc: 3%

Critical Acclaim

"Montrose has been one of Bordeaux's most consistently successful chateaux since 1989. An opaque purple color suggests a wine of considerable intensity. One of the most successful 1994s of the northern Medoc, the wine's closed aromatics offer jammy black fruits, plums, spice, and earth. On the palate, there is impressive extract, purity, and copious amounts of sweet blackcurrant fruit nicely balanced by moderate yet ripe tannin. Medium-bodied, with excellent to outstanding concentration, this impressive Montrose should be close to full maturity with another 4-5 years of cellaring."
