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."

James Suckling: 97 Points

Incredible aromas of currants blackberries slate and flowers. Full-bodied yet so tight and beautiful with superb polis

Vinous: 97 Points

"The 2014 Montrose is without question one of the standout wines of the vintage. Black cherry plum smoke licorice and lavender are some of the many aromas and flavors that open up in the glass. But the 2014 is a much deeper wine than just a bunch of descriptors can conjure. In 2014 Montrose is a wine of exceptional finesse and polish. The late-ripening vintage allowed for perfect maturation of the tannins and resulted in a silky wine that exudes class and pedigree. The 2014 is not an obvious or bombastic Montrose but rather a wine of sublime enchantment. Don't miss it!"

Wine Advocate: 96 Points

Tasted at the château the 2014 Montrose builds on the promise it showed in barrel with gorgeous blackberry raspberry cedar and orange sorbet scents that are extremely pure and refined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin very precise acidity and layers of crisp black fruit laced with vanilla from the new oak at the moment. That will be subsumed in time. What you have here is a very precise multi-layered almost sensual Montrose that is going to delight many for years to come. This is highly recommended—one of the finest Left Bank wines this vintage. Tasted September 2016. -Neal Martin

Wine Spectator: 95 Points

This is seriously built with an admirable core of red and black currant paste and bitter plum fruit inlaid with notes of tobacco bay and smoldering charcoal. The finish is ramrod straight thanks to an iron girder supporting everything with ease. A tremendous effort for the vintage. Best from 2020 through 2035.
