Very beautiful colour, ruby red, shining. The nose is still a bit closed (it is advised to open the bottle 4 hours before drinking) but very pleasant, red fruits, red current.
The mouth is perfectly balanced. The tannins are fine still present but well integrated. Richness, acidity, a nice length. This wine is an immense pleasure today but is also made to last.

Wonderful clean berry fruit with currant, light mint and mineral following through to a full, firm palate with long, silky tannins and a mineral, berry and spice aftertaste. Lovely wine. Firm. This is squeaky clean and beautiful. Enjoyable now but better to wait a few years still.--Non-blind Château Montrose vertical. Best after 2007.
