    July 15, 2020 - Served from a Magnum that was decanted for 60 minutes. Closed in at first with slight tertiary aromas. Dark Color, getting a bit amber around the edges. Then, after another 30 minutes was fantastic! Dark Chocolate, Bay Leaf, incense spice, blackberry, and Oak on the aroma. Typicity of Montrose is still there, despite the warm vintage. Flavor is rich and fruit forward; almost Napa Valley Oakville. Yet, still has a coolness and tannin structure that brings it back to Bordeaux. My assessment is that one should start drinking it now and not hold. This also goes for nearly all 2003 Red Bordeaux’s
