2000 Montrose, St-Estèphe (lightly scuffed label)

SKU #1095977 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of mint, berry and licorice follow through to a full-bodied palate that is thick and rich yet refined and reserved. This is dense and well-structured, with loads of vanilla, berry and lightly roasted fruit. Powerful but still holding back. Compacted and dense.--Non-blind Château Montrose vertical. Inner quote mark (6/2006)

94 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full red-ruby. Roasted, smoky aromas of blackberry, blueberry and licorice. Plush, dense and large-scaled; expands impressively in the mouth. Chocolatey-ripe but kept fresh by nicely integrated acidity. Offers lovely sweetness without going over the top. Finishes with big, dusty, horizontal tannins and lovely aromatic persistence. Offers extraordinary texture and depth of flavor for a wine with just 12.8% alcohol. Inner quote mark (6/2003)

93 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 2000 tasting in London. There is a sense of “controlled opulence” on the nose: blackberry, fig, smoke and touches of boot polish. Very good definition and focus, developing scents of scorched earth/wet clay with time. The palate is medium-bodied, firm tannins, perhaps just a little dry vis-a-vis the level of fruit, muscular, great depth and powerful, but missing a touch of joie-de-vivre towards the finish which means it is a young St. Estephe! Give this time and that mark will tilt upwards. Drink 2020-2040. Inner quote mark (9/2010)
