CHÂTEAU MONTROSE 1989
Saint-Estèphe. 2ième Cru Classé
u. 1 x bn. 1 x vts. 2 x marked & soiled labels. 2 x scraped capsules.
It is an unusual two-grade blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. This is a magnificent Montrose, showing notes of loamy soil undertones, intermixed with forest floor, blueberry and blackberry liqueur and spring flowers. It has a full-bodied, intense, concentrated mouthfeel that is every bit as majestic as the 1990, but possibly slightly fresher and more delineated. This great wine should drink well for another 40-50 years. (Tasted August 2014) WS 96 WA 98+
