International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 108

($80-$90) Full red-ruby. Roasted, smoky aromas of blackberry, blueberry and licorice. Plush, dense and large-scaled; expands impressively in the mouth. Chocolatey-ripe but kept fresh by nicely integrated acidity. Offers lovely sweetness without going over the top. Finishes with big, dusty, horizontal tannins and lovely aromatic persistence. Offers extraordinary texture and depth of flavor for a wine with just 12.8% alcohol.

Tannins starting to soften but this is still a vigorous wine that most traditional claret lovers would want to age a bit longer.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 189

Originally rated 96, this wine confirmed its early rating, although again, the backwardness and still very obvious tannins suggest another 7- to 8-year wait. Dense ruby/purple, with a bouquet of blueberry, crushed rock, and some floral notes, the wine is medium to full-bodied , rich, powerful, but again very tannic and still strikingly youthful. For a wine that is already 10 years of age, it remains infantile. This blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot is indeed a special wine and should hit its prime in about 2020 and last at least 30 years afterward.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling Issue: Web

Aromas of mint, berry and licorice follow through to a full-bodied palate that is thick and rich yet refined and reserved. This is dense and well-structured, with loads of vanilla, berry and lightly roasted fruit. Powerful but still holding back. Compacted and dense.--Non-blind Chateau Montrose vertical. 15,000 cases made.

this is a fabulous bordeaux. ready to drink but decant at least 30 minutes for it to start to open and it will improve for an hour. an almost perfect balance of tannins and fruit with a great nose and huge finish. enjoy now or hold 10 years or more.

Daddy Trust Rating: 96 Tasted On: 12/25/2010

Opening up nicely now, still young, but fairly amazaing. Hard to imagine waiting five more years. Blueberry, crushed rock, floral, casis, soft mouthfeel, balanced. A trimuph. Bordeaux at its best. Open 4 hours, decanted. You will be truly amazed. Save some for the chocolate desert.
