Tasting Note:

When Montrose is good, it really is very good indeed and the 2009 Montrose is an absolute stunner. Montrose had the dubious honour of being our first tasting on Monday morning, but our team left lifted and enthused to taste more. The terroir here always benefits from the hotter, drier vintages and in 2009 Jean Delmas has crafted a wine of exquisite beauty, charm and power. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and just 1% Petit Verdot. Notes of cassis, violets, spices, graphite, truffles, crushed rocks, liquorice and brambles are demurely released from the glass. This is a dense offering, packed with sensual blackberries and dark brooding fruit; however, there is an austerity and strictness, which makes this wine complete. Despite the enormous concentration, there is sleekness to the fruit and a satin texture that makes this wine handsome and true. Splendid!
