94(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2013

Bright, deep ruby-red.  Superripe, deep aromas of black raspberry, cassis, plum, minerals, licorice and bitter chocolate.  Densely packed, elegant and classically dry, with creamy depth of dark fruit and mineral flavors given definition and cut by terrific vinosity.  This compellingly pure, extract-rich wine showed increasing energy as it opened in the glass.  Finishes with big, dusty tannins and outstanding length and perfume.  A great vintage for Montrose, in a modern style.  Following the first couple vintages made under the direction of Jean Delmas, the '09 and '10 have shown considerably more stuffing.  I would not be at all surprised if my score proved to be overly conservative.

Dark red merging with purple to the rim. Blackcurrants and crushed stone on the nose. Strong savory oak. An unbelievable confluence of extract, acidity, minerals, and tannins. Piercing clarity. I must admit, my scepticism of the 2010 Bordeau vintage after the magnificient 2009 has been proven unfounded. 97 points in my book.
