Chateau Montrose 2010

St. Estèphe, Haut-Médoc, Médoc, Bordeaux, FranceThe Montrose is wound tight despite a well-balanced 53/37/9/1 mix of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot but in the end was more old school than exciting. Expected to be one of the greatest Montrose it was not showing that well on the day. It’s a very good wine but licorice, leather and resin is dominating the fruit at the moment and the tannins of St. Estephe were pushing hard through the back end. There’s more merlot than ever in the blend but this wine like most preceding vintages needs two decade in the bottle before its ultimate potential can be assessed.
