CHATEAU MONTROSE

One of the few estates in Bordeaux not named after an original owner, according to local legend it was the reference by local sailors to the hills covered in pink heather that inspired this name.

Montrose had been owned by the Charmoule family since 1896 until it was sold in 2006 to the Bouygues brothers. The new owners instigated an intensive renovation project that was completed in time for the 2013 harvest. One of the key components was sustainability, to ensure that Montrose was as green and environmentally conscious as possible.

The 94-hectare vineyard has a terroir of gravel, typical of the Saint-Estèphe appellation, with sand and some clay. The vineyard is planted in 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, with an average vine age of 40 years.

On average, the vines reach between 40 and 60 years of age before they are replaced, and some of the oldest date back to 1933. Château Montrose is a powerful Bordeaux, massive dense and masculine, and can age and evolve for decades.
