Like all Saint-Estephe great growths, Chateau Montrose wines are deep coloured and powerful, with good backbone. They have a complex bouquest and great elegance, with a fine, tannic background. They withstand the test of time extraordinarily well.

Wine AdvocateA classic effort, the 1998 Montrose exhibits a dense purple color in addition to a sweet nose of jammy cassis, licorice, earth, and smoke. It is a powerful and full-bodied wine with well-integrated tannin. Given Montrose's tendency to shut down, it is performing better out of bottle than I expected. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2030.

Wine SpectatorSlinky and elegant, with lots of plum, tobacco and meat aromas. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a pleasant, fruity finish. Best after 2004. 16,375 cases made.
