    Description

    Chateau Montrose 1986
    St. Estephe
    6bn, 6ts, owc
    Bottle (12)


    "This wine has turned out to be better than I originally thought. Made during a period when Montrose was flirting with a lighter style, the 1986 is one of the beefier efforts from that short-lived, stylistic detour. The wine reveals a dense ruby/purple color with only a hint of lightening at the edge. Fleshy, muscular, and powerful, with aromas of red and black fruits, earth, and spice, this medium to full-bodied, still tannic, brawny Montrose is not yet close to full maturity. It possesses a layered, chewy character, along with plenty of unresolved tannin in the finish." (91 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Ed., Jan. 1998)
