A Fresh and Tasty Saint-Estephe Red Wine

La Dame de Montrose is from the Saint-Estèphe appellation. This second wine from Chateau Montrose is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot.

The 2010 Dame de Montrose has a concentrated, dark, almost black, colour. On the nose, it has complex aromas of cherry, raspberry, tobacco and hints of vanilla. On the palate, the first sip is sharp, and then the wine opens up to give fresh raspberry flavours with notes of vanilla, mocha and soft oak. The fine-grained tannins bring the wine to an end with a long finish.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
One of the best second wines, and possibly the best since the 1990 is the 2010 La Dame de Montrose. This represents 36% of the production and is a blend of two grapes - 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot. A superb second wine, opulent and substantively textured, it shares more in common with a flamboyant, exuberant year such as 2009 than most 2010s. Dense purple, its oodles of fruit, luxurious mouthfeel and terrific finish make it a sleeper of the vintage. It's a wine to buy in abundant quantities and drink over the next 10-15+ years.
