The elegance and freshness of a Saint-Estephe second wine

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 unique signature style that sets this world-renowned estate apart from the rest.

The vineyard

A benchmark among the great wines of Saint-Estèphe and boasting an exceptional location on one of the greatest terroirs in the Bordeaux region, the Château Montrose vineyard covers 95 hectares of vines. This vast single-plot vineyard 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 wine

The second wine of Château Montrose, La Dame de Montrose is made from the same vineyard as the Grand Vin. Mostly made from Merlot grapes, La Dame de Montrose offers another vision of the Saint-Estèphe terroir. Supple and dominated by notes of red fruit, this wine is more accessible in its youth.

The vintage

The mild, dry winter preceded a spring whose cool, rainy conditions led to strong mildew pressure from May onwards, which was perfectly controlled thanks to the estate's diligent teams. Rapid and uniform flowering. Although the dry climate and cool temperatures throughout summer reduced the disease pressure, these conditions slightly delayed the veraison period. The mildness during September, with its high temperatures and lots of sunshine, was ideal for refining the ripening process.

The blend

La Dame de Montrose 2021 comprises a blend of Merlot (53%), Cabernet Sauvignon (38%), Petit Verdot (6%) and Cabernet Franc (3%).
