2017 Château Montrose, Cru Classé St-Estèphe

There's wonderful volume on the nose here, with notes of mulberries, darm plum, liquorice and spice, and saline minerality. The palate is a little more closed at present, but the length is there, and there's precision too. It's broad but balanced, and there's nice clarity.

TASTING NOTES

This is pure and tight with gorgeous cabernet sauvignon character of blackcurrants, blueberries and crushed stones. Full-bodied, yet compacted and polished. It shows a long and beautiful tannin texture at the end. Just rolls off the palate.
