Château Montrose Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2003 (1500ml)

$539

Very deep garnet-black colour. The nose is a little closed giving moderately intense aromas of blackberry, ripe cassis, freshly cracked black pepper and a touch of cedar. The palate reveals this wine's potential with buckets of juicy, warm berry fruit seasoned with a smattering of earth and spice. Finely structured giving medium to firm, tightly knit tannins and medium+ acidity. Very long, purely fruited finish. Drink 2010 to 2030+. Robert Parker

WNH virtual tasting - notes are sexy long lasting beautiful drink of wine - omg and it can last 20 plus years - 100 pointer by RP but not for me but I would never turn down a glass of this - I can’t believe I am down to doing an analogy of sex to how wine is but these are the times of social distancing - and being a gentleman I will refrain from the seedy details except to say until we meet again Montrose - all smiles

PnP. If I was tasting blind I would have said 8 year old California cab. Ripe and robust on both the nose and in the mouth. However this was restrained in the context of the vintage. Overt fruitiness but none of the over the top ripeness that characterizes this vintage . Despite the extracted fruit the acidity kept this beautifully balanced. Very smooth and round. No signs of age and would not open another bottle for 10 years plus. A wine still in its infancy..

Gorgeous licorice, cedar, and currant, deceptively soft but with a lot of supple tannin on the back, very drinkable but with a long life ahead.
