Tasting Note:

Herve Berland and his team are producing striking wines from one of the northern Medoc's finest terroirs. There has been such precision to the wine-making in recent wines, and 2015 is no exception. This is not a grand Montrose like 2009 or 2010, but it is beautifully poised, nuanced and subtle. Produced from 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc; aromas of damson liqueur, mulberry, fine herbs, crème de mûre and wonderfully perfumed fruit emerge from the bouquet. The palate is fleshy, with fine mineral infused dark cherry fruit and morello cherries; it is sweet and engaging and subtly long. In fact, the tannic quality is quite exceptional; clear, unbridled, haunting flavours linger, suggesting that this is grander than first impressions suggest. A very beautiful Montrose.
