La Dame de Montrose 2023

Montrose

Case Format: 6x75cl

Drinking Window: 2042.0

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.

James Suckling

The blackberries and blackcurrants show through beautifully, together with very integrated tannins. Dense and textured. Transparent. Graphite coming through. Second wine of Montrose. 61% merlot, 32% cabernet sauvignon, 5% petit verdot and 2% cabernet franc.

91-93
Jeb Dunnuck

The second wine of the estate is the 2023 La Dame De Montrose, which checks in as 61% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, raised in mostly used barrels. Its a ripe, forward second wine offering ripe red and blue fruits, tons of floral and spicy nuances, medium to full body, and a round, supple, elegant mouthfeel. This ripe, layered, seamless beauty will drink nicely for 10-12 years or more.
