Chateau Montrose – 24/07/2012

Chateau Montrose 2008
Nice classic colour. Classic Medoc nose, cassis tar, cigar leather, dusty ripe stalks. Precise and fresh, straight lines of tannin and acid, soft mellow and rich, good structure and approachable now, with lots of potential for ageing. Nice slight astringency and volatility and a very slight bret character that adds to the complexity. Tight and lean, slight green notes from the petit verdot. Fruit needs more time to open up and express itself.
