Needs intense decanting to reveal its true SE character

08' Chateau Montrose. Just opened. Even on this so called challenging vintage, what a great bottle of wine. Hold.

This was definitely closed at first, and took longer to open up. Eventually had nice blackcurrant and cigar box aroma, good length. Not a hint of age.

There's good stuff in here but just waaay too young. Followed over two hours and barely started to peak through.

16.5/20 (91/100) Необычно светлое по сравнению с другими винтажами Montrose. Аромат спелых ягод черники, ежевики, черники, тимьяна, чёрного перца, ванили, шоколада. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, липкими танинами. Не хватает концентрации во вкусе. Можно пить уже сейчас, вряд ли 2008 станет лучше с выдержкой. #dfwe2018

Black currant, balanced at high level. Tanning is also calm. I understood now that 2nd wine of same vintage is quite reasonable! @, Evax, 180303
