Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
The 1964 Montrose was one of only a handful of Medocs harvested prior to the rains, so the wine exhibits unexpected depth, richness, and vigor. Richer and more intense than the 1966, with a far darker, more opaque color, this huge, old-style, ripe wine offers a substantial mouthful of rich, unctuous claret. Amazingly, it still tastes less than a decade old. It is a great success for the vintage, and may prove to be the longest-lived wine of the Medoc. An extraordinary success! Anticipated maturity: 2000-2020.
