    Château Montrose 1961
    Saint-Estéphe, 2ème cru classé
    Slightly corroded capsules. Bin-soiled and damaged labels. Levels: one top, two upper and one mid/low-shoulder
    Tasting note: An archetypal Montrose. Two recent notes the same month. The first, from the chateau: not as deep as expected; an extraordinary, uplifting, crystallised violets fragrance; surprisingly delicate flavour, delicious. The second: good ripe bouquet; very flavour but with a slightly tart finish. Last tasted Sept 2005. ***** M.B.
