Tasting Notes

Enveloping sweet aromas with plenty of hidden depths. The palate is multi-layered with pure, ripe red berry and sweet cherry flavours which are followed by more complex dark fruit characters, exotic spices and herbs. The tannins are firm but barely noticeable and a mouth- watering acidity gives wonderful balance. An exceptional second wine. Drink 2015 - 2022

Reviews & Scores

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.

Although Jean Delmas remains a consultant at Montrose, he has yielded his primary responsibilities over to a younger staff, but he still believes the 2010 Montrose is one of the all-time great wines ever produced at this estate, equaling or exceeding the quality of the 1929, 1945, 1959, 1961, 1989, 1990 or 2009....
