Often referred to as the Latour of Saint-Estèphe, Château Montrose is a famed 'Super Second' whose dense, powerful, age-worthy wines can stand beside many of its elite First Growth companions. We recommended their highly rated 2018 vintage in our Bordeaux futures report earlier this year, and today are offering another knockout vintage that’s worth your attention. The 2005 Montrose is “the best example of the 2005 that I have tasted […] the bouquet is extremely detailed, displaying more red berry fruit compared to the 2010 Montrose that leans towards black. Graphite and cedar emerge with time, even an unusual floral scent that is uncommon with respect to this property, whilst all the time retaining fantastic focus and delineation. […] It is masculine and structured, yet it has enormous potential, perhaps more than was suggested when it was first released? This is for the long term” (Neil Martin, Wine Advocate). A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 3.5% Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Petit Verdot, the wine garnered up to 97 points from critics upon release and subsequent tastings have reaffirmed their initial impressions. We’ve sweetened the deal even further and are offering this collectible gem at just over 30% off for one week only.   


2005 was the last vintage under the ownership of the Charmolüe family, who steadily enhanced Montrose’s reputation over three generations. The year was defined by drought—the region received less than half the average quantity of the previous 30 years—that subsequently yielded amazingly complex and concentrated wine built to age. The 2005 Château Montrose is defined by its exceptional power, elegance, and vibrant purity of fruit; upon recent tastings over the past few years, critics agree this wine is just starting to open but will continue to mature for many years yet. A classically rated vintage from a celebrated estate with limited-time Concierge pricing at 30% off? You heard right—this is a deal not to be missed!
