La Dame De Montrose 2010

La Dame De Montrose 2010

Ref: A040810

"I had the chance to taste samples of Montrose 2009 and 2010. They struck me as two of the most beautiful young clarets I had ever tasted. Their price is beyond my drinking budget, and in any case it would be a shame to broach them prematurely – but I did, in March this year, buy a case of the 2010 La Dame de Montrose. Second wines are always best in great vintages, and it seemed logical that a little of the stardust would have rubbed off. I’m now on my third bottle of this wine.

It’s gorgeous. I’m enraptured by it. Magnificent scents of chocolate, leather, plums and currants, with the oak a whispered perfume. Tapered power on the palate; a shapely silhouette. But it just gets better; the wonderful Médocain austerity and sobriety grows as the beguiling front palate fades. The quality of the tannins is astonishing: so fine yet so firm. It already has a bucketload of gratifying sediment. Balance, richness, poise, vivacity, concentration: all perfectly judged. Of course I’m drinking it too soon, but too bad. I find it hard not to exclaim after each sip. Not many wines make me do this."
Andrew Jefford, Decanter Magazine September 2014

Château Montrose has, since the 1990 vintage, ranked alongside Cos d'Estournel as one of St. Estèphe's great wines. Owned by Jean-Louis Charmolüe this modest château commands a fine view over the river Gironde.
