Château Montrose 2022 Released
The next release of this campaign is Château Montrose. It is being offered by the international trade for £1,746 per 12×75, a 28.4% increase on the 2021’s opening price (£1,360 a case). It is a very high scoring vintage and still at a discount to the 2016 vintage as seen below.
Neal Martin (Vinous) awarded the wine a barrel range of 97-99 points, lauding the ‘focused, superb concentration’ in Montrose’s ‘trademark sense of symmetry.’ He notes that ‘this could be the finest Saint- Estèphe in 2022.’
‘Unrolls to show the depth and class of Montrose,’ writes Jane Anson (Inside Bordeaux) who scored it 97 points. She goes on to praise the ‘intensity’ and ‘depth of expression,’ praising its ability to have ‘density without shouting.’
Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Independent) gave it a range of 98-100 points. She highlights the ‘vibrant and shimmery’ finish alongside the palate, which she describes as ‘a firework display’ of flavour.
William Kelley (Wine Advocate) echoed the enthusiasm for the 2022 Montrose, scoring the wine 99-100 points. In his words: ‘such a compelling wine that assigning it a bracketed score seems a mere formality.’
