The Chateau Montrose 2012 reveals nutty aromas, especially hazelnut and almond. The palate is harmonious and pleasantly gentle, while the finish is clean and straightforward. Ready to drink now, Le Saint Estèphe de Montrose will keep for three to five years.
Produced on the exceptional terroir of Château Montrose and made in the château’s winery, Le Saint Estèphe de Montrose is the estate’s third wine and a traditional blend of classic Bordeaux grape varieties. Previously available only to the estate’s owners and employees, it uses wines from younger vines and lees wines. The exacting selection process for Château Montrose and La Dame de Montrose, our first and second wines, combined with a relatively generous crop in 2012 meant that we were able to make a larger quantity of Saint Estèphe de Montrose that year and hence offer.
