    Description

    Chateau Montrose 1990
    St. Estephe
    6bn, 2ts, 1lscl, owc
    Bottle (12)

    A fantastic collection from the Trust of a Chicago based wine lover who had an eye for all things French. If impeccably stored Bordeaux and Burgundy in their original cases is your persuasion, then you’re in for a treat. All of the wines stored professionally at an offsite location in Chicago.

    "This wine has an incredibly complex nose of spring flowers, blackberry and cassis liqueur, scorched earth and barbecue spice. It is full-bodied, majestic and opulent, with low acidity and fabulous fruit. It is close to full maturity. The wine should continue to drink well for at least another 30 or more years, but it is showing secondary nuances in the perfume. The wine is absolutely magnificent, broad, savory and mouth-filling. This is one of the all-time modern legends from Bordeaux as well as Chateau Montrose." (100 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #214, Aug. 2014)

    "Full ruby-red. Wild, exotic aromas of crystallized redcurrant, leather, tobacco and minerals; distinctly exotic, even overripe. Then lush, sweet and opulent, with an atypically velvety texture for Montrose. But extremely young and structured, finishing with powerful tannins and great grip and length." (95 pts. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Jul. 2002)


    Estimate: $6,500 - $8,500.
