Deep aromas of blueberries spices fresh chanterelles and grapes follow through to a full body with velvety tannins and a spicy finish. Intense and structured. Second wine of Montrose. Try after 2018.

Over the last twenty years Montrose-s second wine La Dame de Montrose has been an excellent buy. The 2009 La Dame de Montrose (almost all Merlot with a tiny bit of Cabernet Sauvignon) is a seductive succulent effort revealing silky tannins abundant blueberry and blackberry fruit notes intermixed with notions of damp earth truffles and camphor and an appealing luscious personality. Enjoy it over the next 10-15 years.

The color is super dark inky purple almost black and opaque. There's a purity of fruit that is consistent in St. Estephe of blackberry perfume with underlying mineral gravelly stony earthy components. There's a sweet entry of blackberry and plum compote that builds with plus concentration of fruit and finishes with tannins that are so well integrated I hardly notice them.
