(2010 Vintage) The robe: black with ruby hues. Dense and deep The nose: complex with notes of mocha, zan, blackcurrant, raspberry, and violet The palate: blackcurrant, morello, redcurrant, and cocoa give to the palate a rich touch of mellowness Long, ample and homogeneous wine. The after taste is neat, and the mid-palate complex and balanced. The soft tannins are neat and straight on a lingering finish. Splendid wine. Classic of Bordeaux, elegant and noble.
Robert Parker"The 2000 Montrose is a fine effort.. Gigantically sized, its saturated inky purple color is followed by a huge nose of crushed blackberries, creme de cassis, vanilla, hickory smoke, and minerals. Extremely full-bodied, powerful, dense, and chewy, this unreal Montrose should last for 30+ years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2040."
