The Wine Advocate

"Tasted at the château, the 2008 Montrose is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot picked between 29 September and 15 October. It has a far superior bouquet compared to the underperforming 2006 with black fruit, minerals, fern and briary. It is very composed, almost understated, yet clearly with great potential. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, a fine line of acidity, powerful for the finish but with impressive mineralité and tension on the persistence finish. It is quite an audacious 2008 and one of the finest wines of the vintage. Tasted September 2016."

"One of the superstars of the vintage, this classic Montrose is not as showy or opulent as the 2010, 2009 or 2003, but it offers a dense purple color followed by gorgeously sweet black raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with loamy, earthy, forest floor notes, a floral component and a long, full-bodied finish. The 2008 was fashioned from yields of 44 hectoliters per hectare which is slightly less than the 2010's 45 hectoliters per hectare. Forget it for 5-8 years and drink it over the following 20+."

"An undeniably great Montrose, after some time in wood, the 2008 should achieve the heights of the 2003, 1990, and 1989. Stylistically different from those wines, the 2008 harvest took place between September 29 and October 15, and yields were a modest 44 hectoliters per hectare. This superb terroir west of the Gironde River possesses a remarkable amount of gravel in the soil base. Sixty percent of the production made it into the 2008 Montrose, and the person responsible for so many great Haut-Brions, Jean-Bernard Delmas, came out of retirement to take charge over the last several vintages for proprietor Martin Bouygues. An inky/purple color is accompanied by sweet, pure aromas of black fruits and spice. This full-bodied wine exhibits superb concentration, sweet tannin, and a multilayered, textured, full-bodied mouthfeel with no hard edges. The sweetness of the tannin, the extraordinary purity of fruit, and the intense aromatics suggest a year of great ripeness. The difference between the 2008 and the 2003, 1990, or 1989 is the freshness and purity of expression. This should be a long-lived wine (35+ years), yet it will drink surprisingly well at a young age. For some reason, it comes across like an even more pure example of the 1989, even though there is nothing essentially comparable between the two harvests."

"The 2008 Montrose is deeply colored. Oak, black and red fruit made complex by tobacco notes are easy to find on the nose. The wine is concentrated. On the palate, sensations of ripe, dark black fruits fill your mouth. The tannins are polished with good sensations of freshness in the finish. This a refined wine for the vintage."

"Couleur sombre, belle et intense. Nez discret, peu aromatique. Cependant, il possède du fond. Bouche très précise dès l'attaque. Gras, le vin se développe assez aromatique, juteux, mais avec une nuance un peu flottante en milieu de bouche. La finale revient plus tannique. Il me manque une étincelle ! Assemblage 65 % cabernet sauvignon, 30 % merlot, 4 % cabernet franc, 1 % petit verdot. IPT 87 (c'est riche)."

René Gabriel's BDX Total

"60 % Grand Vin. 65 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 30 % Merlot, 4 % Cabernet Franc, 1 % Petit Verdot. Sehr dunkles Weinrot mit lila und violetten Reflexen. Sehr intensives Cabernetbouquet, kühl, viel Tabak zeigend, schwarze Pfefferkörner, Brombeerstauden und eine gewisse Napanote (Montelena) von der Würze her, dunkle Holznoten, sehr floral aber nicht unreif. Im Gaumen ein Grandseigneur, erhaben, verlangend, kräftige Adstringenz, im Extrakt gewisse aber noble Bitternoten, recht langes Finale. Ein recht grosser Wein mit klassischer Ausrichtung und grossem Potential."

René Gabriel 18/20



"Bright ruby-red. Fresh black fruits and licorice on the nose. Juicy and penetrating, with excellent focus and purity to the flavors of blueberry, blackberry and minerals. Tightly wound and very firm on the aftertaste, with suave tannins and excellent length. An excellent Montrose with a modern touch."
