Chateau Montrose had a monumental success in 2014, and that shows through beautifully in this great 2nd wine. This has the powerful dark fruit and gamy intensity of the best of St. Estephe, as well as high gloss polish of the fanciest of red wines. It is hard to believe that this detailed, concentrated wine isn’t the Grand Vin! It manages quite a bit of breadth and richness without being heavy in any way. Delicious.
Drink from 2018 to 2034
