Château Montrose 1976

Main characteristics of the vintage
Spring was early, and the weather maintained fair and hot from April to June. Therefore, the blossoming took place in June (the mid-blossoming in June 5th) with no coulure nor millerandage due to the excellent climatic conditions. We all recall the extreme drought during the months of July, August, and September: continuous sun and heat.
During the harvest, the sky was occasionally a little cloudy. Overall, the sun was predominant with an average temperature: 24-25°C in the afternoon.
Because of these good atmospheric conditions, we fashioned a very beautiful coloured, full-bodied, and fleshy wine.
