An elegant yet richly fruited style of Montrose with medium body sweet notes of black fruits leather dried herbs and earth this round wine is not profoundly concentrated but is well-made with excellent depth ripeness and overall length. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Very pretty aromas of blackberries, spices and milk chocolate. Medium- to full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and a silky mouthfeel. Still tight but refined and long. Just as I remember.--Non-blind Château Montrose vertical. Best after 2008. 12,5... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2002 Montrose 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Known as the Latour of St Estephe for its dense powerful style and ageing<br/>potential, Montrose has produced an immensely appealing wine in 2002. Similar<br/>in style to its 2000, this Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine (62%) boasts rich<br/>yet elegant ripe smoky blackcurrant and cherry fruit of great balance and<br/>purity. The finish is extremely long and creamy with mocha hints and soft<br/>tannins courtesy of the large dash of Merlot (32%) in the blend. Drink<br/>2009-2014.
