Château Montrose, Cru Classé 2006
"The key to success with Chateau Montrose", opined my knowledgeable friend, "is to tuck away a bottle, preferably a wine from an off vintage, in the cellar and then simply forget about it. On returning in fifty years time you will find a vinous pleasure beyond the comprehension of us mere mortals". Sadly my own tasting experience does not include examples of Chateau Montrose as they enter their sixth decade, but my friend was quite adamant that the 1952 (actually I forget the vintage, but it was certainly about this sort of age) was one of the best wines he had drunk in many years. Clearly there is something very special about certain bottles of Montrose.
