Chateau Montrose 1970
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Estephe|
|Label||Slightly Bin stained, slightly damaged|
This is one 1970 that appears to possess the necessary components to develop into something special. It remains youthfully hard and astringent, but there is no doubting the high levels of concentration and intensity. Moreover, the wine exhibits a classy, complex bouquet, offering up scents of cedar, black fruits, minerals, and leather. Full-bodied, powerful, and rich, with outstanding concentration, this wine requires another 7-10 years of cellaring - can you believe that? It is unquestionably a 40-50-year wine.
Winespectator / James Suckling (87)
Currant and tobacco aromas with undertones of basil and sweet tobacco. Medium-bodied, with a delicate palate. Starting to dry out a bit, but a nice wine.-
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 16/20 points.
