2018 Château Montrose, Cru Classé St-Estèphe
At Montrose they were scared of over-ripening of the grapes, so picked in a hurry, and the result is one of the wines of the vintage. Deep and inky and mineral, so saline, with silky acidity and excellent tannins. There’s a classic St Estephe estuarine character, but with opulent spice and wildness and savouriness to the finish. A delight.
