Main characteristics of the vintage
This year will remain in our memories as the year of spring frost. If February favoured a precocious bud burst, a nasty frost depleted a considerable part of the vegetation during the night of April 20th in the Bordeaux area. However, Montrose’s unique terroir benefits of a fully exceptional climate. Its proximity to the river prevents frost-riven temperatures. That’s how Château Montrose’s yield, in 1991, did not swoop.
July and August were hot and dry and the harvest season was hot and rainy.
