  • A thoughtful gift from a thoughtful woman. Unlike me , this is a bit old.... but that doesn't mean it's bad. It wasn't complex but the edgy cedar and berry fruit were delicious. With some air the midpallete filled out nicely. The amazing thing about this bottle is that it turned out to be a tasty and complimentary fish wine.

  • På nesen gir vinen fløtekaramell og støvete kjeller. I munnen mangler det meste unntatt syre. Masse tanniner. 80p.

  • Years younger than it's Age. This bottle was more expressive than the previous I have had. More black spice dark plums and truffles and dusty earth in addition to the graphite and pencil shavings.

  • 2012 - Hi, Jonathan! (Paradise Pavilion @ MBFC): My second 69 to date and while this is a simple one, this is definitely still alive. Consider Fresh with forest floor, lots of earthiness and smokiness. Nothing much on the palate though, simple and dominated by mushroom, tea leaves, earth and cedar. Mellow structure, medium length finish, quite elegance but simple.

  • Jonathan visits Singapore (Pavilion Paradise, MBFC): Pretty good. This was still clearly on its last legs, but it was definitely far, far better than the last bottle we had towards the end of last year. While that probably had one foot in the grave, there was no mistaking the quality on this wine. It still had a distinctly left-bank bouquet, with classic notes of tobacco, cassis and earth showing alongside a touch of more mature orange peel and dried floral notes. A lovely nose. The palate started out pretty well, with nice floating nuances of black cherry and some pure cassis notes welded to fine tannins that still provided a touch of firmness. However, this did fade rather alarmingly in the glass, with the flesh dropping off and the wine starting to its ribs in the remaining tannins and lingering touches of iron mineral and tobacco. Still though, tired though it may be, fading though it was, at least for the first 15 minutes, it was quite a treat, easily matching a 1996 Poujeaux that was served alongside - a real testament to how long-lasting a Montrose can be.
