Chateau Montrose 2014
Ready, but will improve

Montrose is on top form. Hervé Berland, formerly of Mouton Rothschild, is now in charge and large amounts of money have been spent on stunning new facilities. 47% of production is in the Grand Vin this year. 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot, 60% new oak.

Deep ruby colour with a purple tinge at the rim.  Rich and opulent black fruits on the nose. Spicy, with a slight anise note layered with vanilla and smoky cedar. The palate is intense with mouthcoating tannins that are ripe and quite soft for Montrose. The fruit concentration leaves a plush, opulent impression on the finish. Spicy with camphor, mint and blackcurrant. A very Cabernet style as you would expect from this impressive Montrose.
