2006 Chateau Montrose - 92pts

2006 Chateau Montrose (St. Estephe) Bordeaux - France

Decanted: 2hrs

Cost: $139.00-$179.90

Date Tasted: September 13th, 2009

Blend: 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot

Tasting Notes: A very concentrated ruby core. A complex nose with notes of licorice. The palate exhibited high acid and tannins with notes of leather and pepper with a long finish. There was good balance and complexity overall however the expectations were higher than the delivery. Flavours are very subtle. This one will most definitely benefit from age.

Scores: 94+ WA, 89+ ST, 93 WS, 92 IW, Average: 92
