    August 4, 2020 - During a Bdx2000 tasting. Last wine served Nd the most closed one. I recently had a stellar bottle of this that was open and singing. Not this one, still a very brooding wine, dark pitch with moss, gamy notes. Tannins very present still. Wait till 2025. 94-95

    July 21, 2020 - Still powerful robust flavor while maintains a silky smooth. Overall as good and in cases better than the first growths.

    July 4, 2020 - Short decant, pristine bottle fill. Tell tale Montrose nose of moss, peat, blackberry, meat and a whiff of smoke. Excellent fruit on the palate, with good tannic core that has now melted. It is a precise wine, not overly fruity. Despite its 20 years I would characterize this wine still at the beginning of the drinking window. Drink now with a 1h decant and it will surely last till 2040.

    June 28, 2020 - Wow, this is very vibrant and young for being 20 years old. Bouquet of coffee, cassis and some green apple. The palate comes with ultra refined tannins which still have a demanding grip. This makes the finish quite long. I expect that this Montrose will further positively develop over the next decades.

    (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.
