Producing outstanding Bordeaux year after year, this 95-hectare property, Château Montrose is a classified Second Growth in the Saint-Estèphe hierarchy. Just north of Pauillac, Montrose is ideally-situated on a gravelly, well-drained plot that runs along the Gironde estuary for over a kilometer. The local microclimate, unique to Montrose works to mitigate temperatures, protecting the vines from devastating frosts as well as equally destructive heatwaves. The patchwork of a vineyard, planted on the world’s most privileged winegrowing terroirs, has been owned by Martin and Olivier Bouygues since 2006. In 2012 they brought in Hervé Berland, the former managing director of Mouton Rothschild to act as estate manager. This spectacular Saint-Estèphe château crafts three wines, they are immense, powerful, dense and long-lived. The leading wine, Montrose is a monumental fleshy, and persuasive red.
