Saint-Estèphe Grand Cru Classé 2010, Château Montrose


SKU: 36571145434 Categories: ,

The result of rigorous selection at each stage of production, in both the vineyard and the winery, this great, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon wine is typical of the Saint-Estèphe appellation. Structured and tannic but with all the elegance and refinement of a Grand Cru Classé, with time it develops a delicate and complex bouquet. The wines have considerable ageing potential and are exceptionally long-lived. Certain vintages are considered legendary. Matured for 18 months in 60% new French oak barrels, the ‘grand vin’ accounts for between just 35% and 40% of the total production of Château Montrose.
