A fine red wine from Saint-Estèphe

The estate
Owned by brothers Martin and Olivier Bouygues since 2006, Château Montrose is an iconic reference of the Saint-Estèphe appellation. This Second Classified Growth of 1855 reigns over one of the most beautiful terroirs of the Médoc. In the past, as today, Château Montrose has stood out for the quality of its wines and a signature style that has set this world-renowned estate apart from the rest.

The wine
The Second Wine of Château Montrose, La Dame de Montrose is made from the same vineyard as the First Wine. Made mainly of Merlot, La Dame de Montrose offers another vision of the Saint-Estèphe terroir. With a great suppleness and dominated by notes of red fruits, this wine is very approachable in its youth.

The vineyard
Boasting an exceptional location on one of the greatest terroirs of the Bordeaux region, the Château Montrose vineyard covers 95 hectares of vines. This vast vineyard, all in one piece, is a rarity, considered to be an "elite nucleus" of winemaking. Located not far from the Gironde estuary, the Montrose vineyard is planted on gravel terraces mixed with sand on the surface, upon a subsoil of clay.

The vintage
2019 was a very important vintage at Château Montrose, marked by the environmental approach undertaken by the team, the implementation of "green" cultivation practices out in the vineyards. This approach, coupled with the climatic conditions of the year, led to a very successful harvest, which began on September 19 and ended on October 8. The harvest was carried out on a plot-by-plot basis, with grapes from the different lots vinified separately.

The blend
Cabernet sauvignon (48%), merlot (45%), cabernet franc (3%), petit verdot (4%).

The tasting
Tasted en primeur, the La Dame de Montrose 2019 from Château Montrose brings together all the qualities of a fine red wine from Saint-Estèphe. This is a wine that combines precision, concentration and ripe tannins.
