Château Montrose

In 1778, Mont Rose was a gravelly hillside, actually a heather-covered moor whose flowers in shades of purplish pink served as a landmark for navigators heading upriver to Bordeaux.

It was at this date that the land was purchased by Théodore Dumoulin, who undertook the clearing and then the planting of vines completed in 1815 with his son, and that they gave this vineyard the name Montrose in homage to this mountain covered with pink-flowered heather.

It is a Second Grand Cru Classé following the prestigious 1855 list.

The vineyard, which covers around 70 hectares, is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon for 65%, Merlot noir 25%, Cabernet franc 10% on a soil composed of coarse gravel for around 4 to 6 meters and below an impermeable clay-marl layer into which the roots descend to get water, a qualitative asset in summer for optimal ripening.

Yield is around 371 tons, equivalent to 440 to 450,000 bottles per year.

All harvesting is done by hand, and the wine is aged in barrels for half of the crop, and the rest in barrels that have already aged the previous year's wine.

Description Château Montrose 2022.

Wine review of Château Montrose on 2022 vintage by Pierre Graffeuille : 

"The 2022 year offered a climatic scenario close to the extremes which highlighted and brought out all the strength and resilience of the Montrose terroir.

Grace and concentration here reach an unprecedented level here thanks to its croup running towards the river and its deep clays which temper the excesses.

This singular alliance gives birth to a historic vintage that combines tension and balance.

All the solar force is here channeled, sublimated and harmoniously transcribed.

Montrose 2022 shines, but does not dazzle."
