2010 Ch. Montrose, St Estèphe

Ch. Montrose, St Estephe
This is considered to be among the greatest vintages ever made in Montrose, right up with the 1929, 1945, 1947, 1959, 1961, 1989, 1990 and 2009. Harvest was October 15 to 17. The wine has really come on since I last tasted it, and it needs at least another 10 years of cellaring. The blend was 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The wine is opaque black/blue, with an incredible nose of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, with hints of incense, licorice, and acacia flowers. Tannins are incredibly sweet and very present. The wine is full-bodied, even massive, with great purity, depth and a finish that goes on close to a minute. This is a 50- to 75-year-old wine that will repay handsomely those with good aging genes.

Ch. Montrose, St Estephe
The acquisition of some vineyards from Phélan-­Ségur has boosted the Merlot quotient of this, the most tannic of Saint Estèphes, but this is still a very firm, backward wine. Essence of Saint Estèphe: dark, brooding, concentrated with amazing, roasted intensity, glycerol-­saturated fruit and tannin levels that wouldn’t
look out of place in Barolo. A true vin de garde.

Elegant, quite reserved fruit, quite discreet now, will gain in length, but less exciting than 2009.

Ch. Montrose, St Estephe
This 2010 St.-Estèphe wine is dense and dark, with a massive core of roasted fig, blackberry, espresso and bittersweet cocoa flavors followed by rapier tannins that drive through the finish. Ch. Montrose has both richness and austerity. When it all comes together fully, this should be a superb wine.
