1989 Château Montrose

Community Tasting Note


93 Points

Saturday, January 19, 2013 - Not as blown away as I expected, considering the reputation of this wine. Violets on the nose, great palate and a long lingering finish. Still young and just entering it's plane of maturity. This wine has years of positive evolution ahead. A little monolithic though, at this stage of maturity. Tasted along side '82 Figeac, the Montrose just lacked the subtle elegance that those of us that cellar wine cherish.
