Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Montrose 2eme Cru 2003


Lobenberg: Dunkles Rubinrot mit schwarzen Reflexen. In der Nase sehr reife schwarze und rote Früchte, aber nicht überreif. Sehr konzentrierter Mund mit hohen Tanninwerten und angenehm lebendiger Säure, eher klassische Ausrichtung. Ein großer Montrose! 98-99/100


Parker über: Chateau Montrose 2eme Cru

-- Parker: A candidate for a perfect score, the 2003 Montrose has been a superstar since the first time I tasted it in barrel. Showing no signs of weakening, it is an amazing wine from this fabulous terroir. It boasts a deep blue/purple color as well as a stunning perfume of blueberries, black currants, blackberries, licorice and camphor. Dense, full-bodied and rich with an unctuous texture, well-integrated, melted tannins, and a long, heady finish, this big, brawny, super-intense, gorgeous 2003 is just beginning to enter its plateau of full maturity. It should remain there for at least two decades. 99/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateau Montrose 2eme Cru

-- Jeb Dunnuck: A prodigious beast of a wine that's now starting to shed just a touch of its considerable baby fat, the 2003 Château Montrose is based on 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot. It shows the richness of the vintage with its ripe, opulent core of fruit, yet it freshens up noticeably with time in the glass, offering currants, mulberries, smoked tobacco, minty herbs, and licorice. Full-bodied, deep, and powerful on the palate, it still has classic Bordeaux focus and structure. It's drinking brilliantly today with a decant and has another 20-30 years of prime drinking. 99/100


Suckling über: Chateau Montrose 2eme Cru

-- Suckling: After the 2009, this is the most exciting Montrose ever made, with intense aromas and flavors of plums, blueberries, spices, tobacco and cedar. It’s full-bodied with extremely refined tannins but a dense, delicious palate. Better in 2016, but why wait? Tasted in June 2013. 97/100

Mein Winzer


In einer der besten Lagen der Appellation, hoch oben, mit wunderbarem Blick auf die Gironde liegt Château Montrose. 2006 fand ein Besitzerwechsel statt. Martin Bouygues, einer der erfolgreichsten Unternehmer Frankreichs, erwarb dieses legendäre Weingut für eine unbekannte Summe.
