Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
(Ed 1998)
A surpisingly light, innocuous style of Montrose, the 1985 exhibits a medium ruby color, followed by pleasant but washed-out aromas of sweet red currants, earth, and herbs. This medium-bodied wine displays some charm and sweet fruit on the attack, but it narrows out in the mid-palate and finish. There is also angular tannin and herbaceousness in the after-taste. While it is an above average, good wine, in terms of Montrose, it is disappointing.

Medium deep though richly coloured with an open, mature rim; nose redolent of old oak (tree not cask), sweet, great depth opening up, floral, complex

Another fine northern Médoc wine, with tar, coffee and fruit character; medium- to full-bodied and very firm.
