Chateau Montrose, Saint Estéphe, 1982

250.00

60% Cab/Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 6% Cab/Franc & Petit Verdot 2%

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.

About This Wine...

“Focused, minerally. Gorgeous, round and velvety textured yet with very convincing freshness. This was a stunning bottle. True. Great combination of St-Estèphe rigour and 1982’s richness. Not heavy. Tasting it was like a brush on the cheek with a feather. Lovely!”

19/20 Jancis Robinson

“Intense aromas of kirsch, currant and spice follow through to a full-bodied palate, with round, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is complex, changing on the nose and palate. Layered and structured. Will improve for many years to come.”

97/100 Wine Spectator
