Château Montrose  2016 – Saint-Estèphe, Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, gourmand, powerful and offers finesse, a beautiful maturity as well as roundness. It reveals notes of fresh/ripe blackberry, fresh/ripe raspberry and ripe/fresh strawberry associated with a hint of dark chocolate/chocolate truffle as well as a discreet toasted hint, caramelization/hazelnut and a subtle hint of licorice stick. The palate is straight, racy, net/clean/precise, beautifully powerful (but full of finesse!) and offers a beautiful freshness, a beautiful racy minerality, deepness, concentration, a beautiful elegance, a nice structure as well as tension/acid frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of crushed blackberry, fresh/ripe blueberry and slight hints of fresh/ripe strawberry associated with discreet hints of red berries/griotte, racy minerality as well as slight notes of dark chocolate, caramel and a very discreet hint of salinity and toasted oak. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length. A beautiful wine full of elegance, gourmandise. It offers a beautiful power full of finesse! 2024+
