Château Montrose 2021 – Saint-Estèphe 2ème Grand Cru Classé

The nose is elegant, delicate and reveals intensity with finesse, freshness, a lovely airiness, attention to detail, a fine floral character and a lovely multi-layered quality. There are notes of pulpy boysenberry, fleshy gariguette strawberry and more lightly fleshy/acidic red berries, a hint of blackcurrant as well as discreet minty hints, lily, Madagascar pepper and a discreet hint of vanilla/roasted. The palate is nicely conducted, focused, precise and reveals freshness, tension, accuracy, a nice freshness, minerality and purity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of almost roasted cherry, fresh raspberry and more slightly juicy/acidic blackcurrant combined with hints of fresh flowers, vanilla, toastiness, a discreet hint of crunchy berries, fine graphite/minerality almost saline, a subtle hint of toastiness, toasted hazelnut. The tannins are sapid and supple. A fine mellowness and a very fine chewiness on the finish/persistence.
