JancisRobinson.com – 17.5+

Sturdier, drier and more classic and concentrated than the Cos. Good stuff – very ambitious! [05/03/2022]

Anticipated maturity: 2024-2042

Robert Parker – 93

Tasted at the château, the 2012 Montrose is a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot picked between 24 September and 20 October. It underwent a particularly long maceration period between 26 and 28 days. It offers more fruit intensity than the 2011 Montrose with blackberry, raspberry and bilberry scents, quite backward and primal yet well defined. The aromatics almost mock you because returning after ten minutes, there are glimpses of underlying dried herb and mineral notes. The palate is medium-bodied, intense and very focused, clearly with more depth and sinew than the 2011, yet displaying impressive precision and energy on the finish, which bodes well for the long-term. Tasted September 2016. [Neal Martin, 28/09/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2055

Vinous – 93

The 2012 Montrose is one of the bigger, richer wines of the vintage. Super-ripe black cherry, tar, smoke and leather find support in intense tannins that lurk beneath. Today, the tannins are incredibly imposing. The 2012 doesn’t have the sheer heft of the epic vintages, but it does have the potential to be one of the real surprises of the year. This is an impressive 2012. [Antonio Galloni, 01/01/2016]

Anticipated maturity: 2024-2052
