Chateau Montrose Saint Estèphe 2007
Wine AdvocateOne of the stars of the vintage, the 2007 Montrose boasts a deep blue/purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of creme de cassis, crushed rocks, and spring flowers. Dense and opulent with silky tannins, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, a long finish, and no hard edges, this beauty should drink well for 15+ years.
Wine SpectatorInteresting aromas of blackberry and dried mushroom follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a slightly austere finish. Polished and stylish, but needs some fruit midpalate to be outstanding. Best after 2012. 18,335 cases made.
