In 1778, Mont Rose was a gravelly hillside, actually a heathland covered with flowers in shades of purplish pinks that served as a landmark for navigators going up the river to Bordeaux.
It was on this date that the land was purchased by Theodore Dumoulin who undertook the clearing and then the planting of vines completed in 1815 with his son and they gave this vineyard the name Montrose in homage to this mount covered with heather with pink flowers.
It is a Second Grand Cru Classé according to the prestigious 1855 list.
The vineyard, which covers about 70 hectares, is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon for 65%, Merlot noir 25%, Cabernet franc 10% on a soil composed of large gravel for about 4 to 6 meters and below an impermeable clay-marl layer in which the roots descend to get water, a qualitative asset in summer for optimal ripening.
The yield is around 371 barrels or the equivalent of 440 to 450,000 bottles per year.
All the harvesting is done by hand and the wine is aged in barrels for half of the harvest and the rest in barrels that have already aged the previous year's wine.

Description La Dame de Montrose 2015.
Raised from the same vines and made with the same care as the Grand Vin, this Second vin du Château Montrose is renowned for its suppleness and elegance. Intense ruby-red in color, it presents itself in the glass with a powerful, expressive nose. Delicious fragrances of blackberry and blackcurrant mingle with more empyreumatic notes of smoke and roasting. On the palate, the ample attack evolves into a very round balance. The tannins are supple and the fruit aromas powerful. The pure finish lingers on the palate for long Sec rounds. This wine can be enjoyed now, but still shows good ageing potential.
