1989 Montrose - Hedonist's Gazette - December 2005: Of the two magnums Bordeaux, the 1989 Chteau Montrose stole the show. A wine of unreal depth, it is armed with a powerful personality that glides across the mouth like liquid silk. A seductively sensual wine, it drowns the palate in waves of seamless dark fruits. One of the greatest Saint-Estphes I've ever tasted, this wine will give the 1990 Montrose a run for its money when both are at full maturity To me there are six great left bank 1989s, Lynch-Bages, Pichon-Baron, Palmer, La Mission-Haut-Brion, Haut-Brion, and the aforementioned Montrose.
