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."

    For a lesson in deeply structured and complex Bordeaux, look no further than 2010 Montrose. A towering wine that will require patience, it will also deeply reward those who see it through. Although the 2009 is more renowned, the difference between it and the 2010 will a matter of personal preference in time. Deeply pitched with graphite, dark red and black fruits, it has plentiful but well integrated fine tannins and a resounding finish. Plan a day around decanting this gem, or wait another five years before opening. When this opens up, it will provide a few decades of enjoyment.

    Monster of a wine with many years of life ahead. Tons of acid and tannin and fruit. This wine is a must for the YOUNG wine collector.
    Drink from 2020 to 2050
