Reply to "TN: '75 Chateau Montrose"

Had this at a K&L tasting recently. Perfect bottle. Brought by the current proprietor of Montrose direct from the cellar. Still alive and well. Mature, not over the hill, but certainly not one of the great Montrose's. Notes of plum, dried herbs, light cassis, tobacco and sweet earth. Moderate finish. 90 pts. with maybe a couple bonus points included in that score for holding up this well from an off year. (Granted, this was stored well!)
