Tasting Notes and Scores

The first vintage under new owner Martin Bouygues,who convinced Jean-Bernard Delmas to come out of retirement to produce this wine, the 2006 Montrose is an undeniable success. A blend of approximately two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon, one-third Merlot, and a tiny dollop of Petit Verdot, the most dramatic difference between the 2006, and wines made by the previous administration is that Jean Delmas produces wines with sweeter, silkier tannins, although analytically, they are as high as those found in the great Montrose vintages of the past. The 2006 is extraordinarily elegant and finesse-styled, but it exhibits stunningly concentrated, sweet blackberry and cassis fruit with hints of flowers and minerals. Full-bodied with a savory, expansive mid-palate as well as sweet, noble tannins, this beauty will benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age, and should drink well for 20-25+ years.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Montrose is a difficult wine on which to get a handle. It seems very distant and for want of a better word, unlovable on the nose, which lacks the usual depth and conviction. Lightweight? The palate is medium-bodied with rustic, rather dry tannin, mealy in the mouth and surprisingly loose-knit towards the finish. This is a disappointing Saint Estèphe for the vintage - a Montrose that just never seemed to hear the starting gun. Can't win 'em all the time. Tasted January 2016.
