The second wine of Chateau Montrpse 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. This represents 36% of the production and is a blend of two grapes – 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot. 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
French still red wine from Saint Estephe Bordeaux France, made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
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. The parcels, all surrounding the castle, vary from a few square meters to two hectares and bring their own personality in order to produce complex wines. Since the first vine were planted in 1815, only three families owned the property before it was purchased by Martin and Olivier Bouygues in 2006, who reconstructed a spectacular 10000 m² of vineyard and built a modern cellar.

The 95 hectares of vines are planted with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. The first wine is matured for 18 months in French oak of which 60% is new and the second wine spends 12 months in 30% new barrel.
