Château Montrose 2011, Saint-Estèphe 2° Grand Cru Classé - MAGNUM - Parker 90


(€191.33 L)

Tax included

Exceptionally tannic, broodingly backward offering displaying a dense ruby/purple color along with a provocative perfume of crushed rocks, flowers, cassis, black raspberries, and blueberries. It continues to add weight and richness, good traits considering the substantial, forbiddingly high tannin levels and zesty acidity.

The Wine Advocate 91-93/100

"Tasted at the château, the 2011 Montrose is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot picked between 2-27 September. The nose does not possess the exuberance of the 2008, a little conservative and lacking personality by comparison. It does repay aeration though and after some time, there are attractive cold stone/limestone notes that begin to emerge. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, grippy tannin. It is a solid Montrose, quite stout, perhaps not the greatest fun you will ever have with a Claret, yet with admirable depth on the lightly spiced, cedar-infused finish. Whilst I prefer the 2008 Montrose, the 2011 is a decent off-vintage that should offer 20 years of drinking pleasure. Tasted September 2016.."

Jane Anson 94+/100

"They clearly worked very hard and selected drastically to keep the quality up here, and have succeeded. 63% cabernet sauvignon 22% merlot 12% cab franc 3% petit verdot. This has fanatastic length and grip, depth of fruit. Huge difference between first and second wine, a real success here. 12.8 alcohol."

Decanter Magazine 18/20

"Lovely restrained fragrance of Cabernet fruit with an iron backbone, classic depth and firmness of a great Montrose."
