Critics’ scores 

The 2021 Montrose received a barrel range of 93-95 points from Neal Martin (Vinous). Martin said that ‘it has the potential to become an aristocratic, classic Montrose’.  

Antonio Galloni (Vinous) gave it 94-96 points commented that ‘the 2021 is a fine choice for Montrose fans who want to drink the Grand Vin without waiting for decades’.  

William Kelley (The Wine Advocate) also scored it 94-96, and called it ‘a brilliant achievement […] reminiscent of a purer, more precise, modern-day version of the estate’s 1996’. 

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (The Wine Independent) rated it 90-92 points. 

Fair Value analysis 

Today’s opening price comes at around a significant premium to the price implied by Liv-ex’s Fair Value methodology 

Buyers looking for value might be interested in the better rated 2017, 2015 and 2014 vintages which are all available for less than today’s release.
