Château Montrose 2008

  • |
  • 4 /5
Regular rainy episodes and very mild temperatures characterize the year 2008 during which we distinguish all the same some hot and sunny episodes, especially at the beginning of flowering (mid-June) and the veraison (end-July)

Once again this year, Montrose's unique terroir has helped fight against pest pressure, thanks to the draining capacities of its soils of serious associated with the permanent air current that sweeps and dries the vineyard
The happy consequence of this collaboration between the benefits of the terroir and the work of man (prophylactic measures and work in green) is the quality of the manna at the approach of maturity; maturity that, from the beginning of September, we could wait with serentié, in order to harvest a raw material of quality
Harvest and vinification The macerations lasted 18 to 21 days.
