    May 18, 2019 - Delicious....earth tabacco cedar elegant red fruit. Medium/full body. Lovely nose and looonggg finish. Wish I would have picked this up 19 years ago when it was an 80 dollar wine.

    May 18, 2019 - Dark ruby. Timid nose of dark fruit, licorice, not much tertiary notes and complexity yet. The palate is very tannic still, the fruit is there but overall it confirms that this is a Montrose from an era where ripeness and tannin management were not at a level that we see now in top years like 2009/10/16. Good but not great. Wait till 2025 before drinking this. 2h decanting is a must.

    May 9, 2019 - Bistro du sommelier, Bordeaux.
    Pas de notes formelles.
    Ouvert 20 minutes avant dégustation.
    Réticent à se livrer au nez.
    Plutôt léger, même un peu fluide en bouche. Longueur moyenne, sans doute lui fallait-il plus d’air.
    Note pour le moment.

    May 7, 2019 - Decanted 2hrs. Very dark but clear ruby purple with perhaps just a hint of brick at the rim. Enigmatic but intriguing nose of warm ripe fruits and just a hint of Chinese five spice. On the palate, sweet and concentrated dark fruits with a slight gaminess. There's a rich bloody element to this wine with plenty of minerals and grippy tannins still. Really lovely wine. Started to dry out a bit on day two but whatever, this is really delicious and a step up from the Leoville Barton. Glad I've got 2 more.

    April 13, 2019 - 96. 4 hour decant. Fragrant nose of mineral, clay, blackcherry. Mid palate explodes with dried blackcherry, great depth and perfect balance. Long finish. First of 9 bottles purchased 15 years ago, glad I waited. Drink or hold.

    (Montrose) How about a case for your great grandchildren? Here it is. Montrose 2000. This wine hurt me, but is still oh so good. Huge nose of minerals, wet stones, chocolate, earth, spice. Almost Pessac-like was my first impression. Palate was really primary and fat with unreal density and precision. Very backwards with a long finish and a resounding thump of tannin at the end. Incredible wine in need of 20-25 years. A monster.
