Commentaire Tasted at the château, the 2012 Montrose is a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot picked between 24 September and 20 October. It underwent a particularly long maceration period between 26 and 28 days. It offers more fruit intensity than the 2011 Montrose with blackberry, raspberry and bilberry scents, quite backward and primal yet well defined. The aromatics almost mock you because returning after ten minutes, there are glimpses of underlying dried herb and mineral notes. The palate is medium-bodied, intense and very focused, clearly with more depth and sinew than the 2011, yet displaying impressive precision and energy on the finish, which bodes well for the long-term. Tasted September 2016.
La note de dégustation de la rédaction du Figaro  Vin 4.5/5 Dégusté en 2013 Dégustation de la rédaction du Figaro Vin : En 2012, Montrose fait patte de velours, il est arrondi, très fin, les tannins sont là, mais en souplesse. Le grand vin représente 53% de la production.
