Estate Notes

Château Montrose 1990 is in a class of its own, and Robert Parker rated it a staggering 100 points! A truly outstanding left bank Bordeaux.

Montrose is enjoying a grand period in its history. Over recent years it has been arguably the most reliable of all Saint-Estèphe Cru Classés: accounting for muscular, masculine Bordeaux. And that is certainly true of this truly outstanding 1990 vintage, which just keeps on getting better and better in bottle.

 

Reviews

"This wine has an incredibly complex nose of spring flowers, blackberry and cassis liqueur, scorched earth and barbecue spice. It is full-bodied, majestic and opulent, with low acidity and fabulous fruit. It is close to full maturity. The wine should continue to drink well for at least another 30 or more years, but it is showing secondary nuances in the perfume. The wine is absolutely magnificent, broad, savory and mouth-filling. This is one of the all-time modern legends from Bordeaux as well as Chateau Montrose." eRobertParker.com
