St.-Estephe enjoyed more success in 1991 than any other Bordeaux appellation, largely because the damaging frost caused little damage to the first generation fruit in the northern Medoc. Consequently Montrose's production was close to normal and the wine is one of the stars of the vintage. That being said, it is not close to the wondrous quality of the 1989 and 1990, but it is superior to this property's 1988. It reveals a dark, saturated color (one of the most opaque wines of the vintage), and a tight but promising nose of sweet, jammy, black-raspberry fruit, minerals, and subtle new oak. With a medium to full-bodied personality boasting considerable tannin, admirable ripeness, and layers of fruit, this excellent wine should reach full maturity in 7-8 years and last for nearly two decades.
