La Dame de Montrose 2009

Montrose

Case Format: 1x600cl

La Dame de Montrose is the breath-taking second wine from the illustrious Saint-Estèphe estate, Château Montrose. Montrose has continued to create acclaimed wines for the past couple of centuries and were one of the first ever Bordeaux estates to make a second wine. Only 800 metres from the Gironde estuary, Montrose benefits from an excellent microclimate that protects the vineyards against the frost. Their terroir comprises deep clay-gravel soils which enables the vines to thrive. The blend of La Dame de Montrose predominately features Merlot, which adds a silky and expressive texture to the wine. Production varies each year, but is usually formed from around 40% of the Montrose vineyard. This is a gorgeous wine which has the ability to be drunk sooner than its older sibling.

William Kelley

The last vintage before the integration of parcels behind the château formerly belonging to Phélan Ségur, the 2009 La Dame de Montrose offers up rich aromas of dark berries, pencil shavings, fig jam, dark chocolate and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety, its rich, seamless and enveloping, far outperforming its second wine status. La Dame represents 25% of the estates production this year.

Tasted blind. Mid crimson. Good balance in a rather minor key. More St-Estèphe than 2009. Well behaved but decidedly undramatic. Inky finish.
