Castle Montrose - Saint-Estèphe 2012

The year 2012 is punctuated by the whims of time. The winter is dry. It begins with a very dry period over the first three months of the year. Temperatures in January are very mild, those in February are particularly cold. Spring is rainy. Fresh, moist climatic conditions slow the growth of the vine. The flowering is slow and spread over the first three weeks of June, causing a certain heterogeneity on the vines. The work of the vine growers on the vineyard will make it possible to put the vine in the best conditions for the evolution of the grapes. At the end of July the summer finally settles. The month of August is particularly sunny and very dry with several very hot days. Mid-véraison is a little late, around 17 August. This beautiful weather continues in September, causing fears of a blockage in the maturity of the berries. The expected rain finally arrives on September 22nd. The ripening cycle is relaunched and it is with the utmost attention that everyone watches over the slow and gentle process until the end of the season. The unevenness of the maturity of the grapes in the plots will lead to a particularly precise and careful cutting of each plot at the time of picking. The harvest begins on 24 September with Merlot. The Cabernet-Sauvignon will only be harvested from the 13th of October, serenely and with complete maturity until the 20th, without any degradation of the health status of the grapes and despite the rainy episodes. The berries are very ripe, the musts are of great richness, with a very nice fruit and a very intense coloring matter. The maceration is exceptionally long, 26 to 28 days, the very thick films of Merlot and Cabernet asking for more time to extract the quintessence of this vintage. At the cost of many efforts and a certain risk taking in the course of the harvest, 2012 is one of the excellent vintages of the property of recent years.

The 2012 Montrose (57% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Merlot), is rich, broad, and dense ruby/purple, with substantial tannins still to shed. It is a rather masculine, medium to full-bodied Montrose, with cassis, crushed rock and spice. This wine will need bottle age because of the tannin profile, should hit its prime in another 7-8 years, and last for another 20-25. This is another wine with the alcohol pushing an impressive 14% and a finished pH of 3.7 – two characteristics of a very ripe, high-quality vintage. (92+)

Fascinating aromas of blackberries with cacao and buttery notes. This is a full-bodied red combining well-rounded tannins, lovely acidity and a mouth-watering finish. Yet turns firm and powerful. Drink in 2020.

Features lively and pure blackberry, fig and plum fruit, lined with enticing singed mesquite, bramble and tar accents. The muscular, tarry finish shows a twinge of austere chalkiness, but there's ample flesh for balance. Best from 2017 through 2025. 18,333 cases made. –JM

(57% cabernet sauvignon, 37% merlot, 5% cabernet franc and 1% petit verdot):  Deep ruby-red.  Floral, mineral nose hints at fresh blackcurrant, but this sample seems tight and closed down currently.  On the palate, somewhat strict and linear flavors of blackcurrant and wet stone are lifted by a repeating note of violet.  The finish is long and clean but could use more flesh.  This classic Bordeaux reminded me of a wine made in the 1970s, but it's easier to drink and less green.  Picking took place as late as October 13 for the cabernet sauvignon in the estate's effort to find the ripest possible grapes.  About 52% of the estate's total production went into the grand vin, similar to the percentage at Cos but much higher than at Calon-Segur.

This is not as rich and powerful as the celebrated 2010, nor is it quite as good as the 2011 in my view, but it is still a firm, thick-skinned red with impressive concentration. The wine certainly needs time in the barrel and bottle to come together, but the component parts are all there: black fruits, firmish tannins, subtle oak and a lift of refreshing acidity. A classic Montrose. Drink: 2022-40

Great density and depth in this serious Montrose made from small berries. There is 37% Merlot in this vintage, about 3% more than average. The wine has good strucutre, plushness and density with lovely tannin profile and long finish. A successful wine for Montrose with potential to age and evolve over the next 20 years.

Tasted as a barrel sample at the château. The Grand Vin, representing 53% of production, is a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. It is being matured in 60% new oak. The nose offers plenty of fruit, perhaps even more than Cos d’Estournel with ebullient dark cherries, dark chocolate and black plum scents, although at this stage it does not have the complexity of a top Montrose. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe tannins that are obviously fully ripe. It is not a complex Montrose, perhaps just a little one-dimensional compared to others. But there is certainly good volume, soft in the mouth (some prudent pumping over here in the winery) with plenty of primal black fruit to enjoy on the finish. It will probably constitute a more approachable Montrose, but it is well made. Tasted April 2013.

Delivers a solid core of black cherry and tobacco leaf, with a briary backdrop on the finish. A bit chewy overall, but this maintains good intensity and a mouthwatering chalky edge. Backward, displaying fine length. —J.M.

With sooty tannins and lovely earthy undertones, this is firm and powerful with real St-Estèphe flair.

Sélection sévère, nez dense, racé, complet, corps imposant et équilibré, tannin noble, le vin aura plus de précision et d’harmonie que le 2011 et plus d’harmoniques de saveur et de sensations tactiles que dans la plupart des millésimes récents. Le sommet de l’année dans l’appellation.

The inky/purple-colored 2012 offers up scents of white chocolate, creme de cassis, acacia flowers, crushed rocks and forest floor. The tannins are surprisingly soft as the pH is about 3.7, which is slightly higher than the 2010's 3.6. This dense, full-bodied wine is still somewhat monolithic, but it is loaded with concentration and power as well as a long finish. While not totally formed, all the component parts are present. The 2012 will not match the level of the 2009 and 2010, but it should stand out as one of the highlights of 2012.

Only 52% of the production made it into the 2012 Montrose, a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon (harvested between October 13 and 20), 37% Merlot (picked during the third week of September) and a tiny amount of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The pH was 3.7 and I suspect the alcohol level pushes 14%. It is one of the top successes of the vintage. As new administrator Herve Berland indicated, the severe six-week drought caused the Cabernet skins to become very thick, thus resisting the huge rainfall that fell between October 7 and 9. The late harvest dates suggest very ripe Cabernet Sauvignon, which appears to be exactly what has occurred.

From a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, the wine sported deep colors. Earth, coffee, stone and blackberry notes require effort to find. Cassis and black fruits share the stage with minerality and a tannic backbone. With time, this should come together nicely. 91-93 Pts

Couleur sombre, intense et belle. Nez intense, fin, complexe et mûr. Moelleux à l’attaque, riche au développement et juteux au milieu, puis ample et profond, ce vin très aromatique, subtil, fond en bouche et s’achève puissant, séveux, noble et long sur une grande finale complexe. C’est du grand vin. Une très belle réussite. Gouté plusieurs fois à ce niveau. Alcool 13°2, p.H. 3.7, IPT 89. Assemblage : 57 % cabernet sauvignon, 37 % merlot, 5 % cabernet franc et 1 % petit verdot. Rendement : 38 hl/ha. Sélection : 53 % de la production.

Bright deep crimson. Exciting, 'pointed', rather sharply etched impact on the nose. Almost shrill but with great density and definition. Very vibrato! A long-distance runner like Cos d'Estournel.

Superb colour, wonderful expression of graphite, almost Pauillac Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, terrific density yet almost satiny texture, very good structure and Latour-like depth, a great classic that needs time. 18.25/20pts ( 94/100pts)
Drink: 2018 - 2035

This shows a lovely finish with ultra-fine tannins and pretty fruit. Refined and long. Plenty of ripe and clean fruit. Tangy and fresh. Shows careful viticulture and winemaking.
