Lot #49. Montrose 1964

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 92 RP.
The 1964 Montrose was one of only a handful of Medocs harvested prior to the rains, so the wine exhibits unexpected depth, richness, and vigor. Richer and more intense than the 1966, with a far darker, more opaque color, this huge, old-style, ripe wine offers a substantial mouthful of rich, unctuous claret. Amazingly, it still tastes less than a decade old. It is a great success for the vintage, and may prove to be the longest-lived wine of the Medoc. An extraordinary success!... Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition # B1, Jan 1998
Provenance: The Dominion Cellar
Notes: 1 very top shoulder, 1 top shoulder, soiled and stained capsules, nicked, lightly stained, and lightly bin soiled labels
