1988 Montrose


85Average Score
flagBordeaux / France

Tasted at the Montrose vertical in London, the 1988 Montrose is in the unfortunate position of forming the prequel to the 1989 and 1990, and frankly, it lags a long way behind. It is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc that was harvested from 26 September until 9 October. The nose is youthful, rustic and a little flat with touches of oxtail and dried blood infusing the black fruit. The palate is masculine and dry, lacking the substance showing in the stylistically similar 1986 Montrose, but here with some attenuation towards the finish. Drink now if you have any bottles. Tasted June 2016. Mar 2017, www.robertparker.com
