Expert's opinions

19 / 20
Jancis Robinson

(11-2016) Served blind initially. Subtle, dry but gorgeously smooth-textured with fully evolved tannins. Really fresh with great drive and energy - almost like a fully ripe Cabernet Franc. Savoury, leathery, firm yet round. Admirably long. No hurry to drink this.

(02-1992) A serious combination, Montrose and the 1982 vintage. And so it proved to be. Although not tasted recently, harmonious, excellent flavour but its ripe sweetness hardly denting its tannic astringency.

Wine Spectator

(2006) Intense aromas of kirsch, currant and spice follow through to a full-bodied palate, with round, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is complex, changing on the nose and palate. Layered and structured. Will improve for many years to come.

(02-2015) I expected more ripeness and mid palate weight from this great vintage in a magnum. Rather, this wine is restrained, elegant and quite mellow rather than exuberant. Find cedar, tobacco and earthy flavors with tannins that are supple and velvety. Enjoy now.

Jean-Marc Quarin

(12-2000) Dark red. Average intensity. Evolved. Net. Average intensity. Discreet. Animal touch. Powerful. Warm. Cooked fruits. A little cardboard? Again, this entry could be that of a Saint-Julien, then the wine evolves in the mouth, less loose than Gruaud Larose, suave and melting with a slightly cardboard taste. Rich and wrapped tannin clean with the vintage, with a soft taste and a low acidity.
