"perilously close to matching the heights of the 2009 and 2010" NM

Ch Montrose 2ème Cru St Estèphe 2014

Preceding the two great vintages of 2015 and 2016, the wines from 2014 might have drifted from thought but to overlook this charming vintage is to miss some wonderful wines.
 
The growing season was not without its challenges but those chateaux that were in turn diligent in the vineyard and careful in the winery have produced enthralling wines of energy and precision, and in Montrose one finds a chateau that excelled.
 
“Dare I say, this is one grand vin that comes perilously close to matching the heights of the 2009 and 2010.” Neal Martin April 2015
 
In terms of market price, bearing in mind the 2009 at £1140/6, the 2010 at £1050/6 and its younger siblings, the 2015 and 2016 offered at £600/6 and £750/6 respectively, the 2014 at £550/6 sits rather appealingly.
 
We are delighted to offer a recently acquired parcel of the wine and although the sun still shines on this most glorious summer, we thought it just too good to wait for autumn.

      Tasting Notes

      Goedhuis, February 2018

      A very polished wine, with hints of cedarwood, coffee bean and spice on the nose. In the palate the initial attack is one of power and intensity, and then the richness of the fruit takes hold to reveal a wine of subtlety underneath. Beautifully integrated and very long.
