Falstaff Magazin (02-2019)
Dark ruby garnet, delicate ocher edge, subtle edge brightening. Notes of tobacco and blackberries, delicate liquorice, mineral touch, smoky touch. Velvety and chocolatey, with less air, animal, black berry, ripe tannins, long-lasting, nougat touch also in the finish, just great, mineral and very convincing. Peter Moser

(02-1997) In several tastings last year, the 1990 Montrose clearly revealed its incredible complexity and massive character. I was especially pleased when, at a large lecture I gave in London at the end of March, the 1990 Montrose, in very tough company (Cheval Blanc 1989 and 1990, Pichon-Lalande 1989 and 1990, Certan de May 1989 and 1990), proved the over-whelming choice of a crowd of nearly 400 British tasters. The wine is remarkably rich, with a distinctive nose of sweet, jammy fruit, liquefied minerals, new saddle leather, and grilled steak. In the mouth, the enormous concentration, extract, high glycerin, and sweet tannin slide across the palate with considerable ease. It is a huge, corpulent, awesomely-endowed wine that is still relatively approachable, as it has not yet begun to shut down and lose its baby fat. It thoroughly embarrassed the 1989, itself an exceptional wine.
