2nd wine of Chateau Montrose, 2nd Growth. It is very hard to find this wine now in Singapore!
2009 vintage: 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Almost deep ruby. Medium plus intensity of nose which offers scents of blackcurrant, violet, cherry-red sweet. Floral notes, ripe red berries, milk bread and cocoa wrap around a neat, long and elegant palate. The wine is harmonious, long and powerful but also well balanced. Good finesse for a Bordeaux. 2009 was truly a great vintage for Bordeaux!
