The 1975 vintage for Bordeaux is a truly classic one with the best wines being still young. I have had the 1975 Chateau Montrose on a few occasions, and it's a great bottle. The best bottles will still hold for another decade or more. 1975 Montrose is a good value too, with the current vintages being twice the price. So there is great value here as well. We were able to procure a few pristine cases out of Bordeaux that will arrive late spring. There is also a lovely recent decanter review below as well.
Decanter 93 (Jane Anson) tasted 3-2017 One of the better vintages of the 1970s, from an estate that was recognized to have been particularly successful right from the harvest and was spared the hail that affected some Médoc properties.Today, the nose is dominated by wonderful burnished tobacco, leather and truffle that are such classic markers of older Bordeaux. This is an older wine in its tertiary phase, no question, but it is soft and embracing rather than tired - it gives a shrug and invites you in. The aromatics are less clear than in its youth, but they are still warm, with rich wild strawberries and sweet blackberries burnished with the smoky embers of yesterday's fireplace. (Drink between 2017-2027)
