Showing off a unique identity, the La Dame de Montrose cuvee is produced with the same care and attention as the Grand Vin of Chateau Montrose, the prestigious Grand Cru Classe located on the Left Bank of Bordeaux.
First created in 1983, this wine pays homage to Yvonne Charmolue, who managed Chateau Montrose from 1944 to 1960.
La Dame de Montrose from Chateau Montrose offers a delicious expression of the Saint-Estephe terroir in a supple wine that is accessible even in its youth.
The La Dame de Montrose 2018 is made from a blend of Merlot (52%), Cabernet Sauvignon (39%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The result of a magnificent vintage, often compared to 2009 and 2016, the La Dame de Montrose 2018 will be counted within the greatest vintages of Chateau Montrose.
Composed of 52% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc, harvested from September 17 to October 5, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 La Dame de Montrose delivers a profound nose of baked plums, blackberry preserves and raisin cake with touches of dark chocolate, licorice, Chinese five spice and sandalwood. Full-bodied, rich and opulent in the mouth, it fills the palate with ripe, generous fruit, backed by firm, rounded tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and spicy. - Wine Advocate/Parker
