K&L Notes

99 points Neal Martin for Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Montrose vertical in London, the 2010 Montrose was the youngest vintage by some 115 years, but it is undeniably one of the best. It is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot picked from 27 September until 15 October. Deep, almost opaque in color, it has a tightly wound, arresting nose of blackberry, bilberry, crushed violets and graphite all with quite brilliant delineation. The palate is medium rather than full-bodied, laden with plenty of fruit, grippy like many 2010s with a structured, masculine and tannic finish that wards you away for another 10-15 years. However, it is still possible to admire the purity and delineation of this long-term Montrose, a wine that comes with a compulsory cellaring. Patience will be handsomely rewarded. How long can you wait? Tasted June 2016." (03/2017)

    Fine nose, effusive with rose petal scents. Really attractive, with a good mouthfeel. A very fine Montrose.

    Big wine. At UGC: Still very closed right now, but starts to come around nicely with air, though you still have to concentrate to find the velvet underneath the iron. You can see the pedigree here. Could this be a 100-pointer?
