Located in the east of St Estephe, north of Marbuzet, Château Montrose boasts of the Medoc’s best vineyard sites and is often considered to be the most reliable and longest-lived wines in the region. The parcels, all surrounding the castle, vary from a few square meters to two hectares and bring their own personality in order to produce complex wines. Since the first vine were planted in 1815, only three families owned the property before it was purchased by Martin and Olivier Bouygues in 2006, who reconstructed a spectacular 10000 m² of vineyard and built a modern cellar.
