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.

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. - Robert Parker collapse

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. collapse

The La Dame de Montrose 2010 has a very well defined bouquet with beautifully assimilated oak: perfumed scents of blackcurrant, blueberry and pastilles. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp entry: firm and quite rigid tannins, fine acidity and a bullish structure on the finish to suggest that this needs long-term cellaring. This surpasses all my expectations. collapse

It shows firm tannins as well as black currant fruits. These flavors are followed by spice, leather and drying tannins. It does have a sense of elegance that promises well for its mid-term aging. collapse

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.

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 collapse

Displays enough grip to warrant short-term cellaring, and should stretch out well over the mid-term. Best from 2015 through 2024. –JM collapse
