    Here we have the power of Chateau Montrose but at a more approachable price. Scents and flavors of bright Bing cherries, earth, leather , sweet dark fruits and flowers expand as this takes on air. The finish is long and fresh in this wine of impeccable pedigree. Decanting for at least an hour is highly recommended.

    Save your 2014 Montrose and drink this "baby Montrose." 60% Merlot from a great value north Medoc vintage. Tobacco and coffee aromas. Plenty of minerality on the palate. I just love this wine. No hard edges. The 3rd wine of Montrose.
    Drink from 2017 to 2032

    Value alert!!! This is the 3rd wine from Chateau Montrose, in St-Estephe. A big wine with a lot of fruit that needs decanting, this bottle is perfect for someone who likes a full bodied wine with some earthiness.

    Showing absolutely beautifully right now, lots of elegance and poise. It is approachable and yet could be put in the cellars for a while.

    Since the "Dame" is the official second label of Montrose, I guess that makes "Le St. Estephe" the the third wine, but pound for pound I think it's right there with the great lady. Considering most properties generally use their youngest vines for their second and third label expressions, you can really see just how much effort Montrose put into revitalizing their vineyards with this release. The "Le St. Estephe" is a gorgeous and precise claret, one that seamlessly weaves delicate fruit, dry earth, and soft tannins into a medium-bodied, old school style. Far from a fruit bomb, the wine never lacks ripeness or roundness, but it's beautifully integrated into the other elements here. 2014 is not only a great vintage for the grand vin, it's a great vintage to demonstrate just how deep the quality runs at Montrose today since the new owners took over in 2006.
