    October 2, 2016 - Deep red - but, for a Montus, a bit pale! Bq w barnyard, meat, smoke, dark berries. High acidity, still prominent tannins. Fruit beginning to fade. While the wine isn't really tasting that old, it seems to be separating into its components. Drink quickly!

    October 27, 2015 - Nein, das ist kein großer Wein! Aber, er ist lecker! Nicht jeder mag Tannat. Die Nase schreit zwar :"Bordeaux"! Und der erste Schluck lässt einen auch noch nicht zweifeln, aber das ist doch etwas anderes! Etwas eigenes! Er ist jetzt endlich absolut reif, wird wohl auch nicht mehr besser, läst sich aber bestimmt noch 2-3 Jahre auf dem Niveau trinken. Was ist hier bloß in großen Jahren und bei den besseren Selektionen von Alain Brumont möglich!?
    TRINKT MEHR TANNAT!

    July 23, 2015 - still deep coloured . Deep damson fruit on nose bit of slate, full bodied tannins still evident but luscious notes as well. Quite linear and slight drying finish but good.
