Description
2008 Chateau Montrose - Saint-Estèphe 2éme Grand Cru Classé - 3 Bottles (0.75L)
Red wine - France - 95/100 points, Robert Parker

Parker 95 pt. Drinkdate 2016-2046. One of the superstars of the vintage, this classic Montrose is not as showy or opulent as the 2010, 2009 or 2003, but it offers a dense purple color followed by gorgeously sweet black raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with loamy, earthy, forest floor notes, a floral component and a long, full-bodied finish. The 2008 was fashioned from yields of 44 hectoliters per hectare which is slightly less than the 2010's 45 hectoliters per hectare. Forget it for 5-8 years and drink it over the following 20+. The wine was always stored in a temperature controlled cellar.
