2006 Chateau Montrose Saint Estephe


Bordeaux, France 

In 2006 the wine is epitomised by balance and finesse. It has enormous tannins but not only are they very fine, but they are also serenely cloaked in dense crushed blackberry fruit, earthy spice and minerally coffee hints. The wine's cool classic edge merely serves to further reinforce its silky, feminine style - well for a St Estèphe anyway. Very good indeed.
