    (Château Montus Madiran Cuvée Prestige) Black red violet with cherry red meniscus; very tight at first, opening to ripe plum and black fruit nose and cassis, like a plush Napa Cab, then changed, after 2+ hours, to more of a tart meaty nose; initially showed rich, concentrated, ripe plum, black fruit and cassis palate with minerality and elegant iron notes; after 2+ hours, tart red fruit and beef jus came out to join the black fruit; long finish 94+ pts. (drank the bottle by myself throughout a 7-course truffle themed meal at Restaurant Robert Rodriguez in Carcassonne)

    (Chateau Montus Madiran Cuvée Prestige) Deep, intense colour, right out to the rim. Smoky, smouldering charcoal nose, laid over with a meaty, animalistic aroma. A very firm presence on the palate; full, rich in dark cherry fruit, although revealed only with persuasion. This wine needs time, another five years I suspect, to relax and yield these flavours more readily. A very dry, tannic structure, but there is good balance. Very good indeed.
