1921 & 29 Ch Montrose
The result of rigorous selection at each stage of production, in both the vineyard and the winery, this great, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon wine is typical of the Saint-Estèphe appellation. Structured and tannic but with all the elegance and refinement of a Grand Cru Classé, with time it develops a delicate and complex bouquet.
The wines have considerable ageing potential and are exceptionally long-lived. Certain vintages (1921, 1929, 1982, 1990, 2009) are considered legendary.
CHÂTEAU MONTROSE St.-Estèphe 1921
This is ultraripe with sweet tobacco, plum and mint and verging on pruny. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a powerful, layered mouthfeel. Long, long finish. This is amazingly fresh yet decadent and aged. Wild wine.
1940 Ch Mouton Rothschild
A considerably rare wine. “Beautiful color, gushingly fragrant bouquet; sweet, soft and lovely, with a very dry finish” Broadbent.
1953 Ch Cheval Blanc
Robert Parker Jr: “In the fifties, the greatest vintage is the 1953. I am sure this wine has been fully mature for at least 15-20 years. Nevertheless, it has held its magic for that considerable period, and is still the most fragrant, and from an aromatic perspective, the most compelling Cheval Blanc I have ever tasted.”
1959 Ch Latour
“Glorious. It just goes from strength to strength, showing no signs of flagging, its opacity merely prefacing its beautifully developed bouquet, sweetness, richness, excellent flavor and perfect balance – perfect enough to keep on maturing for another quarter century. Six Stars” Broadbent.
“From a magnum with excellent fill. Explosive nose displaying intense blue and black fruits, cassis, blackberry jam, a hint of milk chocolate, caramel, cedar, butter, tobacco and eucalyptus. Incredible concentration, layers upon layers of cassis, unctuous yet polished and silky, bright acidity and unbelievably long finish with cassis and cedar as the end notes. First time trying in magnum, it certainly shows the perfect mature Latour characters but so much more opulent and energetic. I have drunk at least ten bottles of this wine and this is a couple notches better. One of the greatest Bordeauxs of my life.” DCWINO
1975 Ch Cheval Blanc (Mag)
Grand Cru Saint Emilion at its best. Being from Magnum this wine should offer everything that is great about Cheval Blanc with the characterized tannin, structure and elegance of 1975 – only with more depth and complexity.
