The Grand Vin represents 60% of production and is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. It has a fragrant nose, quite ripe and somehow akin to a Saint Julien than a Saint Estephe as there is little trace of that telltale earthiness at the moment (and it is not geosmin). There is a hint of green bell pepper in the background and that become exaggerated by aeration but it is an attractive component. I wonder how this will play out during élevage? The palate is full-bodied with a firm grip. There are quite furry tannins here, a solid Montrose, a little charmless in its youth as is often the case, but exhibiting fine persistency on the bullish finish. You actually warm to it the longer it lingers, gathering momentum so to speak, so I’m keeping the faith.

Graphite, camphor, incense, tobacco, smoke and game burst from the glass in the 2013 Montrose. A dark, brooding wine, the 2013 boasts notable depth and tannin considering its mid-weight structure. The 2013 will require at least a few years to come together. Graphite, scorched earth, sage and rosemary are some of the notes that inform the intense finish. This has real density for the year. Based on two tastings so far, the 2013 Montrose is making a very strong case for itself as one of the wines of the vintage. The blend is 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, with quite a bit more Cabernet than the more typical 55%.
