Château Montrose 2008 – Saint-Estèphe, Grand Cru Classé

The nose is elegant, fine, powerful and offers a certain richness (precisely balanced). It reveals notes of black berries and blackberry combined with discreet hints of rose, mocha as well as a hint of grilled oak and a slight hint of graphite. The palate is fruity, mineral, elegant, beautifully gourmande and offers a good definition, freshness, a racy minerality, a small mineral / acid frame (in the background) and a good structure. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of cassis, fresh red berries and slight notes of cherry, blackberry combined with discreet notes of violet, minerality, a discreet note of mocha / cocoa as well as fine touches of oak and cassis bud on the finish (discreet). Tannins are fine, structuring and a bit firm. Good length and persistence. There is a very discreet hint of pepper on the retro.
