Château Montrose 1982

Main characteristics of the vintage
From the beginning to the end, the year was exceptional. The months of spring were fair, with an early flowering (mid-flowering in June 4th) without coulure nor millerandage.
July, August, and September were hot, very sunny and dry continuously; heat and exceptional drought characterize the harvest season. Evidently, the temperatures were high for the season: 20°C in the morning and 30-32°C in the afternoon.
These perfect conditions fashioned a wine of an overwhelming quality.

Period of harvest
