Tasting Notes Montrose 1997
The 1997 Montrose has turned out better than expected. Although lighter and less concentrated than usual, fragrant aromas of plum liqueur, soil, cedar, and leather are attractive. Round and tasty, with good fruit, low acidity, and fine ripeness, it will drink well for 5-6 years.
A deep garnet colour. Pink/salmon rim. Nose closed. Needs a little more fruit. Has potential. Good length. Tasted en primeur in Bordeaux. Tasted April 1998.
