Château Montrose – 2ème Cru Classé de Saint-Estèphe 2012

An intense wine, fine, complex and expresses notes of black fruits (blackberries, plum, blackberry) , slightly more raspberry but also flowers and spices (vanilla, cocoa, sweet spices or even a hint of tobacco). The palate is smooth , balanced, full, slightly mineral and dense. A nice fruity juicy, power and good aftertaste. The tannins are well made, well integrated and demonstrate a great flexibility for their age. A wine that I personally would keep at least 5 /6 years in cellars.
