Dear Wine Lover,
Château Montrose decided to release a few cases directly from the Chateau cellar of its monumental 2010 vintage. Rated 100 points by Robert Partker who declared: This is considered to be among the greatest vintages ever made in Montrose, right up with the 1929, 1945, 1947, 1959, 1961, 1989, 1990 and 2009. Thanks to our great relationship we managed to secure some cases direct from the Chateau which never moved from the Châteaux cellar guaranteeing a perfect provenience and the best quality you can find on the market for this wine! All is in Original Wooden cases and in absolute perfect condition.
Just for your reference here bellow you can find a comparison of the only 3 vintages of Montrose which received 100 points from Robert Parker himself. As you can see the 2010 looks still undervalued.

Harvest was October 15 to 17. The wine has really come on since I last tasted it, and it needs at least another 10 years of cellaring. The blend was 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The wine is opaque black/blue, with an incredible nose of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, with hints of incense, licorice, and acacia flowers. Tannins are incredibly sweet and very present. The wine is full-bodied, even massive, with great purity, depth and a finish that goes on close to a minute. This is a 50- to 75-year-old wine that will repay handsomely those with good aging genes. (Note: The Chateau Montrose website gives an aging potential of 2020-2100.
