Chateau Montrose 2020 St-Estèphe Bordeaux France (Futures Pre-Sale)
Pre-Sale Ships after September 2022
98 Points Decanter - A serious wall of blueberry and blackberry compote, and a ton of savory Cabernet sinew and freshness. This is a great Montrose, inky, broad-shouldered and structured. It needs time to aerate and open in the glass, then you see the precision, the heft, the chiseling of the fruits with a ton of graphite, cigar box and campfire smoke - huge persistency. This will need a long time and will reward patience. One of the few where a 1986, 2016 and 2010 comparison makes sense.
97 Points Wine Enthusiast - Barrel Sample. While the wine is firm and with powerful tannins it has delicious fruitiness that is more forward than in many vintages of the wine. The fine black currant flavors are underlined by acidity while the Cabernet Sauvignon gives a fine, firm structure to this very direct wine.
