Estate Notes

Château Montrose 2001 made the most of an irregular Bordeaux vintage - one of the vintage’s most powerful and concentrated wines. It was purchased in its original wooden case.

Montrose's success, as ever, was based on low yields. This is a classic Montrose style with incredible extract and its signature crème de cassis dimension.

Montrose is enjoying a grand period in its history. Over recent years it has been arguably the most reliable of all Saint-Estèphe Cru Classés: accounting for muscular, masculine Bordeaux.


“Sweet notes of earth, compost, and thick, juicy black currant as well as cherry characteristics jump from the glass of this dense purple-colored 2001. Medium-bodied and rich, with moderately high tannin as well as surprising power and density…” Robert Parker

“Very dark, perfumed aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet and minerals. Bright but youthfully tight, with flavors of black fruits and minerals and moderate density. Finishes firm and backward, with very good grip.” Stephen Tanzer
