Chateau Montrose 1996

The last wine tasted in Watson's Cellar. $60 for 25cc. Thanks Mr. Hennensy for his treat.

Recommended by another visitor on spot. He was the winery owner from Bordeaux coming all the way to explore further opportunity of deals with the east.

Learn a few tips from this authentic owner. He could tell right directly the approximate age even the wine itself looks young n needs maturation. His tip is to tell the length n brightness of the rim. The longer n brighter of the rim, the older the wine is. Undoubted true that with 13yrs vintage, it is difficult to justify from it's ruby red body.

Long tears. From it's smell of unopenness, vaccum flavor would allow you imagination of it's potential behind. Dominated by licorice n leather flavour.

I personally am not a big fan of leather, around 90% of these wine are long-lasting tagged with astronomy price.
