Lot #223. Montrose 1998

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 92 JMQ.
"Dark red. Lively. Good intensity. Young. Brilliant. Clean. Average color intensity. Fruity. Fine touches of caramel and licorice. Pure and fine. More powerful. More saline. Soft entry on the palate, very fruity, rounded and savory, developed, medium to full-bodied. The wine evolves toward juicy notes, always close to the fruit and melting in the mouth, with savor and power. It leaves in the finish a beautiful note of ripe fruit with no hard tannins, even if they are present; they are very palate-coating. Beautifully fine wine." Jean-Marc Quarin, Quarin.com, Apr 2001
Provenance: The Champignon Cellar
Notes: Base neck, lightly scuffed, lightly wrinkled capsule, slightly recessed cork, lightly mold stained, lightly scuffed label.
