Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Montrose 2eme Cru 2005


Lobenberg: Extrem dunkles Rot, fast schwarz. Sehr drückende Nase. Gutes Volumen. Feine Süße dahinter. Sehr intensive Frucht. Im Mund sehr charmante Frucht, sehr rassig. Ein sehr saftiger Wein. Über allem ganz große Harmonie. Geschliffen, sattes, superpoliertes und feines Tannin. Der Säure perfekt Frische verleihend, aber nie aufdringlich. Ein Wein von überrragender Feinheit. Kein Blockbuster, kein 90er, aber ein traumhafter Wein. Einer der schönsten Montrose, die ich verkostet habe. Ein ganz großer Montrose, wenn auch vielleicht im Vergleich zu den letzten Jahren etwas untypisch wie dieser gesamte Jahrgang. Traumhafte Finesse. Toll! 97-98/100


Parker über: Chateau Montrose 2eme Cru

-- Parker: Tasted at the vertical in London, the 2005 Montrose came and delivered the goods. This was the best example of the 2005 that I have tasted, perhaps a wine that is going to prove that, the longer wine lovers can resist temptation. It is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 3.5% Cabernet Franc and .5% Petit Verdot picked between 23 September and 9 October. The bouquet is extremely detailed, displaying more red berry fruit compared to the 2010 Montrose that leans towards black. Graphite and cedar emerge with time, even an unusual floral scent that is uncommon with respect to this property, whilst all the time retaining fantastic focus and delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with a ferrous tincture on the entry. There are the first signs of secondary notes (dried leaves and bay leaf), but it is the tannic backbone and the precision that really defines this Montrose at the moment. For certain, it is masculine and structured, yet it has enormous potential, perhaps more than was suggested when it was first released? This is for the long term, but you know that already. Tasted June 2016. 97/100


Galloni über: Chateau Montrose 2eme Cru

-- Galloni: The 2005 Montrose is spectacular. Bright, perfumed and vertically explosive, the 2005 possesses remarkable energy right out of the gate. In 2005, Montrose doesn't quite have the heft that it can, but that actually works to its advantage. Readers will find a wine that marries elegance with power so well. Gravel, dried herb, lavender and mocha lend striking complexity to the dark fruit in this gorgeous, regal Montrose. If anything, the 2005 still needs more time in bottle! 97/100


Suckling über: Chateau Montrose 2eme Cru

-- Suckling: Loads of spice, berry, meat, cloves and chocolate on the nose. Full body with soft, silky tannins and lots of rich fruit. Still chewy. This is just starting to open now. It was decanted three hours in advance in this tasting. I would still leave it. 96/100


Decanter über: Chateau Montrose 2eme Cru

-- Decanter: Deep florality and wonderful black fruit. Surprisingly smooth and silky at first then the classic firmness becomes plain towards the finish. It has more natural richness than most in 2015 – a superbly made wine from a great terroir. 96/100

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.
