The second wine of Château Montrose is at a high level. With its ripe chocolate and sweet black currant flavors, the structure comes from dark tannins, which, as so often in Saint-Estèphe, are dry, but not hard, and have delicious fresh berry fruits to envelope them. A wine that is great for aging over 4–5 years.
