Reviews for 2010 La Dame de Montrose Bordeaux Blend

Bright damson plum cherry and black currant fruit races along in this invigorating red with mouthwatering acidity and a superfresh iron-filled finish that has a nice rapier feel. Sleek and long. -J.M.

Composed of two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot it is one of the finest examples of this cuvee I have yet tasted. Intense blueberry and cassis fruit intertwined with floral notes a plump unctuous texture and abundant fruit characterize this seductive fleshy wine. Consume it over the next 10-15 years.

The finesse in this wine is impressive for a second wine with wonderful polish. The finish is very beautiful. 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot.

Tasted at the Château the La Dame represents 36% of total production and is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot. It demonstrates great purity on the nose a floral note that I have not encountered on La Dame... Tasted at the Château the La Dame represents 36% of total production and is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot. It demonstrates great purity on the nose a floral note that I have not encountered on La Dame before (perhaps more feminine in keeping with the name?) The palate is very smooth and refined silky in the mouth with succulent blackcurrant and cassis towards the finish that belies some fine tannins underneath. It is just...delicious now and one hopes in bottle. Drink 2013-2020. T

This wine represents 36 percent of total production with average yields at 45hl/ha and average vine age of 20 years. Harvest began on Sep 27 with merlot and ended on Oct 15 with cabernet. 13.7% alcohol. Restrained power but shows its elegance with layers of aromas wrapped around a core of black and blue fruit with a perfume of crushed flowers. Blackberry and cassis fill the attack which builds to a peak of black raspberry and the finish is pretty and long. The tannins are a bit more open and broad shouldered and will need some time before the drinking window arrives probably 3-10 years.
