    (Chateau Montrose (St Estèphe)) A fine opportunity here to taste this, as I have some in the cellar. The aromatic profile consists of a very rich but well-honed presence of fruit, clearly very youthful, but pleasingly still open to assessment even though we are now at five years of age. On the palate the fruit has an intense but still very primary character, well polished despite its youth. Having had such attractive aromatics lull me into a false sense of security, the palate is more as I would expect at this moment, showing all substance and structure and no pleasure at the moment. The texture has a great, polished style, very firm and composed, bitter almost, with firm and ripe tannins which are actually very well hidden, together with an appropriate seam of acidity. Very savoury, restrained, masculine and in need of time. Perhaps a couple of decades, or maybe more, will do it?
