Château Montrose Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

$399

1989 and 1990 deja vu all over again?...There is no sense of hotness, only extraordinary transparency and precision, allied to massive fruit intensity...this super-concentrated claret possesses a style reminiscent of the sumptuous 1990 combined with the structure of the 1989...the finish is endless. The flavor profile bursts with black currant, blackberry, and boysenberry fruit intertwined with hints of spring flowers and crushed rocks. Huge body, sweet tannin, and wonderful freshness make for one of the all-time great wines ever produced at Montrose. Robert Parker

Focused, dense, hard outer shell, tightly wound and locked ... But Loaded with quality marks that will take patience to enjoy... Graphite, dark fruits, young cassis, and tannins that shutter the meek - 98 points - save for a decade before considering to open.

Way too young. So much promise, though...

Intense extract of immense dark cherry, pomegranate and graphite. Yet sleek and balanced. An evolving finish that lingered for two minutes. Bone dry, needed two hours of decanting before it fully opened and shared its treasures.

One of the most tannic 09s I had. Lots of promise, a modernday 90!
