Over het wijnhuis De meeste châteaux hebben hun naam te danken aan hun oprichter of een belangrijke eigenaar, maar dat is niet het geval bij Château Montrose. De naam ‘Montrose’ betekent letterlijk ‘roze heuvel’ en verwijst naar de roze-kleurige heide, die in bloei stond op de plek waar het château nu staat. Château Montrose, gevestigd in Saint-Estèphe is een 2e Grand Cru Classé en staat bekend als maker van intense Cabernet Sauvignon-gedreven wijnen. Leuk detail: Château Montrose eindigde als derde in de befaamde “Judgment of Paris” in 1976.

Awards "Surpassing the 2019 and rivaling the 2016 as this estate's finest vintage of the last few decades, the Château Montrose 2020 is a monument in the making. Wafting from the glass with aromas of violets, dark berries, licorice, loamy soil, black truffle and subtle spices, it's full-bodied, deep and layered, with a seamless, elegantly muscular profile, terrific purity and energy, beautifully powdery tannins and a long, resonant finish. It checks in at 13.7% alcohol, the same as the superb 2009, but it is even deeper, more vibrant and more complex than the 2009. This will be worth a special effort to seek out and only confirms Montrose's status as one of the contemporary Médoc's leading estates and a de facto first growth." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The nose is really fantastic with lead pencil shavings, iron shavings, blackcurrants and lavender. Full- to medium-bodied with ultra-fine tannins that run the length of the wine. Wonderful persistence and personality. Juicy and savory finish. Always classy and sophisticated at the end. Organically grown grapes. 71% cabernet sauvignon, 23% merlot, 6% cabernet franc and 1% petit verdot. Best after 2028." - James Suckling about Château Montrose 2020

Château Montrose 2020 contains 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. Harvested 10 to 29 September. Bottled July 2022. Deep purple-black hue to the rim. Dense but reserved at present. Hint of blackcurrant pastille as it opens. Lovely texture and tannins. Close in structure and form to 2019 and 2016. Perhaps a touch more depth than 2019. Fresh, lithe and clean. - Jancis Robinson

"The 2020 Montrose is epic. Dark, rich and brooding, the 2020 possesses remarkable intensity, and, yet it is somehow not excessively heavy. Time in the glass brings out the wine's more elegant sophisticated side. All the elements are so well-balanced. Red/purplish fruit, lavender rose petal, gravel and spice are all accented by veins of intense minerality that lend shape and energy. The 2020 is a modern-day classic for Montrose and one of the great wines of the Left Bank." - Vinous

"Gorgeously rendered for the vintage, with a well-endowed core of loganberry, mulberry and cassis flavors that roll through and are laced with a cast iron hint, while tobacco, warm stone and black tea accents swirl in the background. The long, authoritative finish steadily melds the fruit with the cast iron edge. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2026 through 2040." - Wine Spectator

"Scented and perfumed on the nose with a delicate charm. Striking, full, round, juicy and crisp - this has bite and a sense of strictness in the frame that keeps things relatively narrow at this point but comes with excellent definition of elements. Great classicism with lots of freshness. Really very seductive, the black and blue fruit, graphite and touch of smoke grow and expand with richness and intensity but staying friendly at the same time thanks to the soft sweetness and juicy acidity. I just love the interplay between being serious and generous, structured but racy, intense yet precise. Such purity, and focus. Energetic and pent up, this is raring to go to show off its beauty but just being held back. Effortless, complex and compelling. I loved it a tiny bit less than the 2019 but it’s still one of the best in 2020." - Decanter
