CHÂTEAU MONTROSE 2005
Saint-Estèphe. 2ième Cru Classé
u. 3 x bn. 3 x scraped & marked labels.
The bouquet is extremely detailed, displaying more red berry fruit compared to the 2010 Montrose that leans towards black. Graphite and cedar emerge with time, even an unusual floral scent that is uncommon with respect to this property, whilst all the time retaining fantastic focus and delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with a ferrous tincture on the entry. There are the first signs of secondary notes (dried leaves and bay leaf), but it is the tannic backbone and the precision that really defines this Montrose at the moment. Tasted June 2016. Drink: 2025-2065 WA 97
