Chateau Montrose 2022

On the 16th June 2023, we now see the release of the second growth wine from Saint-Estephe named Montrose, and the price is up 26.3% on last years release. The ex negociant price is 144 Euro a bottle. The wine is being offered by the international trade for £1,746.00 per case of 12 bottles at 75cl each according to Liv-ex, and this will result in an increase of 28.4% on the opening price of the 2021's.


Liv-ex members ranked this year’s Montrose among the top ten wines of the 2022 vintage in Liv-ex’s En Primeur Survey.

Critics’ scores


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.’
