Château Montrose 2019 – Saint-Estèphe 2ème Grand Cru Classé

The wine benefits from being decanted. The nose offers finesse, elegance, concentration and precision. There are notes of crunchy blackcurrant, pepper and more slightly wild berry fruits combined with hints of black tea, racy minerality, iodine, hints of cola, crunchy morello cherry, strawberry and fine hints of sweet blond tobacco, Bourbon vanilla and a subtle almost cinnamon edge. The palate is fruity and offers juiciness, acidity, fleshiness, minerality, power, a racy (and elegant) texture, roundness, harmony and a nice finesse/elegance in its straightness. Nice freshness and dynamism. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of tart/pulpy cherry, fleshy currant and, more slightly, blackberry, combined with a touch of tart/crunchy blackcurrant, as well as hints of pulpy plum, tonka bean, toasted almond, and a discreet hint of coffee and cardamom. The tannins are elegant and racy.
