Château Montrose 2013 – 2nd Cru Classé, Saint-Estèphe

Still a beautiful, precise and pure fruity notes, which is characteristic of this vintage. The nose is complex and expresses notes of black fruits (cassis, plum, blackberry) associated with some sweet spices and hints of oak. The palate is delicate, fine, complex, fresh and well balanced. It expresses notes of blackcurrant and plum related but much more subtle with notes of strawberries. The tannins are fine and well done. Good precision in the work of tannins. Presence of a small saline notes in the finish but it should disappear with time (it happens regularly on futures wines so young and unfinished). Beautiful persistent in mouth.
