1994 Montrose


87Average Score
flagBordeaux / France

Tasted at the chateau, the 1994 Montrose is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc picked between 15-26 September. It is still fresh after 22 years, although it does not quite bring the personality and charm of the 1993 to the table. It feels more predictable, a little unexciting, even though the blue fruit and hints of iodine lend something different. The nose just feels rather static. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin. This is foursquare, savory with notes of leather and truffle towards the finish that feels like it is beginning to dry out. On the plus side, this 1994 has decent harmony and length, and the hint of brown spice on the finish is pleasing. Drink now, because it will not improve any further. Tasted September 2016.
