Chateau Montrose Saint Estèphe 2010

SKU 61630


The robe is black with ruby hues. Dense and deep. The nose is complex with notes of mocha, zan, blackcurrant, raspberry, and violet. The palate is blackcurrant, morello, redcurrant, and cocoa give to the palate a rich touch of mellowness. Long, ample and homogeneous wine. The after taste is neat, and the mid-palate complex and balanced. The soft tannins are neat and straight on a lingering finish. Splendid wine. Classic of Bordeaux, elegant and noble.

Wine SpectatorRock solid, displaying a dense core of plum, steeped currant and braised fig fruit, with racy charcoal and ganache notes. Intensely chalky, offering flesh and refinement to match the bracing minerality, this shows hints of grilled savory, iron, warm paving stone and bitter orange on the riveting finish. Should age very slowly. Best from 2019 through 2038.

Wine EnthusiastThis is such an elegant wine that has all the structure of the vintage. Surrounding the tannins, the wine is sweet and ripe, with smokiness from the wood. It's powerful, elegant and sophisticated with a strong sense of poise. The tannins promise long-term aging.
