Château Montrose Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

$135

The 2014 Montrose is without question one of the standout wines of the vintage. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and lavender are some of the many aromas and flavors that open up in the glass. But the 2014 is a much deeper wine than just a bunch of descriptors can conjure. In 2014, Montrose is a wine of exceptional finesse and polish. The late-ripening vintage allowed for perfect maturation of the tannins and resulted in a silky wine that exudes class and pedigree. The 2014 is not an obvious or bombastic Montrose, but rather a wine of sublime enchantment. Don't miss it! Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

The 2014 Montrose has a bouquet that exudes class and sophistication: pure and mineral-driven black fruit, cedar and pencil lead, hints of blueberry developing with aeration although it never impedes upon the sense of terroir. The palate is medium-bodied with graphite-tinged black fruit, filigree tannin, a sweet core of blackberry and boysenberry fruit with a satin-like texture towards the finish. There is obviously some high quality oak used here, but it is simpatico with the fruit. For Montrose, you might argue that this is more modern in style and yet it is undeniably crafted with real panache to create a modern classic. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

17+/20 (92+/100) В аромате тон задают специи - чёрный перец, гвоздика и лакрица; много спелых ягод черной смородины и черника, есть шоколад. Тельное с высокой, отдельно стоящей кислотностью. Танины густые, обволакивающие, ещё суховатые. Спелые чёрные ягоды и шоколад во вкусе. Очень молодо с большим потенциалом. #dfwe2018

Much finer tannins than what we've tasted yet. Still green vine, but less. Better fruit.
