A dense and deep colour, the wine has an intense and complex, slightly saline nose which reveals notes of blackcurrant and very ripe fruit with airing. From a powerful attack on highly refined, velvet tannins, the smooth and dense mid-palate offers attractive and expressive flavours, leading into a long and elegant finish. An incredibly precise wine, it sets a benchmark for Château Montrose.
Château de Chambrun is a traditional Lalande-de-Pomerol property completely revitalised by a dynamic, young winemaking team. Its vineyards lie metres from those of Petrus, yet being on the wrong side of the commune border, its wines are offered at a fraction of the price.
