2012 Saint-Estephe Deuxieme Cru Classe

Despite the contrasted conditions in 2012, Chateau Montrose included another superior release in their illustrious collection of the past decade.

The 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot display a vibrant, deep purple colour. The first nose is quite closed. Elegant red fruits, black currant bud, and eucalyptus notes are revealed with the swirl. The palate is fresh and forward. The mid-palate is full, strong, and silky. The finish is incredibly long, with hints of anise and brioche. This Saint-Estephe 2e Cru Classe is intense yet distinguished.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2012 Montrose (57% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Merlot), is rich, broad, and dense ruby/purple, with substantial tannins still to shed. It is a rather masculine, medium to full-bodied Montrose, with cassis, crushed rock and spice. This wine will need bottle age because of the tannin profile, should hit its prime in another 7-8 years, and last for another 20-25. This is another wine with the alcohol pushing an impressive 14% and a finished pH of 3.7 û two characteristics of a very ripe, high-quality vintage.
