Château Montrose

 

Château Montrose is one of the five Grand Crus classés of the Saint-Estèphe appellation and one of the two Saint-Estèphe ranked 2nd Growth. 


The vineyard covers 95 hectares and it is mainly planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (63ha). The estate produces 3 wines: Château Montrose, La dame de Montrose, and Le Saint-Estèphe de Montrose.

The ceiling is not made of wood but of cement which has been hand-painted so that it looks like wood.
Cement needs no treatment that could contaminate the wine.
