Quite good, especially after a touch of aeration. 4/5 glasses
Dark, powerful, very good.
Three and a half glasses
June 2009 tasting of Montus 2003: deep purple, little sign of ageing. Hugely complex on the nose - meaty, dry, spicy. Palate: full body, lots of tannin, some sweetness, medium acidity. Lots of oak coming through. Liquorice, blackberry finish. Long finish. An amazingly enjoyable wine that can be enjoyed over the next up to 5 years (glad I have 4 bottles in my cellar!) You would not suspect the 15.5% alcohol. Enjoy with barbecued red meat (duck breast/beef rib-eye)
Four and a half glasses
External Reviews for Château Montus Tannat Blend Madiran
Black licorice, tobacco, anise & herbs all present themselves on this intense bouquet. This wine is excellent with steak au poivre or grilled meats.
Plenty of meat, iron and stone in this muscular wine from southwest France. Coffee bean and spice flavors fill in the richly texture finish. Best from 2004 through 2007.
