In 1778, Mont Rose was a gravelly hillside, in reality a moor covered with heather whose flowers in shades of purplish roses were used as a landmark for navigators going up the river to Bordeaux.

It was on this date that the land was bought by Théodore Dumoulin who undertook the clearing and the planting of vines completed in 1815 with his son and that they gave this vineyard the name of Montrose in homage to this mountain covered with heather. pink flowers.

It is a Second Grand Cru Classé according to the prestigious list of 1855.

The vineyard which covers approximately 70 hectares is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon for 65%, Merlot noir 25%, Cabernet franc 10% on a soil composed of large gravels for approximately 4 to 6 meters and below a layer of clay. Impermeable marl in which the roots descend to feed on water, a qualitative asset in summer for optimal ripening.

The yield is of the order of 371 barrels, ie the equivalent of 440 to 450,000 bottles per year.

All the harvest is manual and the wine is aged in barrels for half of the harvest and the rest in barrels having already aged the wine of the previous year.
