Tasting Notes

This is aromatically quite similar at this early stage to the La Cabotte. There is an extraordinarily powerful effort with impressive mid-palate density and so much dry extract that it imparts a sappy, even seductive texture to the mouth coating flavors that terminate in a breathtakingly long finish. Moreover, as good as the La Cabotte is, and it is indeed exceptionally good, there is simply no contest between the two wines as there is just another dimension present here. In sum, this beautifully well-balanced Monty is an absolute knockout!

Score: 96Allen Meadows, (51), June 2013

(13.8% alcohol): Good pale yellow. Deeply pitched aromas of apricot, musky truffle and smoky oak. Fat and sweet following the Cabottes--in fact downright exotic. Seems to be passing through an oxidative phase of its elevage and a bit flat today. Very ripe and creamy in the mouth, but a tad phenolic on the back end. My range should be viewed as strictly provisional.
