Located in the east of St Estephe, north of Marbuzet, Château Montrose boasts of the Medoc’s best vineyard sites and is often considered to be the most reliable and longest-lived wines in the region.
Their second wine is generously fruity with plenty of blueberry and black berry fruits alongside cedar and earthy notes. Rich and seductive on the palate with silky tannins.
“One of the best second wines, and possibly the best since the 1990 is the 2010 La Dame de Montrose. … A superb second wine, opulent and substantively textured, it shares more in common with a flamboyant, exuberant year such as 2009 than most 2010s. Dense purple, its oodles of fruit, luxurious mouthfeel and terrific finish make it a sleeper of the vintage. It’s a wine to buy in abundant quantities and drink over the next 10-15+ years.” – 94pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, March 2013
