La Dame de Montrose 2019


Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 94.0

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.



Georgina Hindle

Generous nose filled with sweet blackcurrant fruit. This is dense and impactful, chewy with fine but grippy tannins making their presence known straight away. I love the texture though, its mouth coating in the best way - refined, with bright berry fruit and liquorice edges, particularly on the finish. Everything feels in balance with plenty going on and lots to like. A blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot (which is unusual because normally there is a majority of Merlot) with 3% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot.

Jeb Dunnuck

The 2019 La Dame De Montrose is another impressive second wine and certainly worth seeking out. Ripe darker cherries, currants, leafy herbs, tobacco, and a hint of classic Saint-Estèphe damp earth all emerge on the nose, and its medium-bodied, with a silky, graceful texture, light tannins, and a great finish. Its everything a second wine should be and will evolve nicely for 10-12 years.
