Chateau Montrose La Dame de Montrose 2010

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

This is the Montrose estate's second wine, and in 2010, it is a tasty blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot. Full-bodied yet supple, it will begin drinking well in 2014 after an hour of decanting, but will really hit its stride between 2018-2022. And it is an unbelievable deal for a great 2010 --- the 2010 Chateau Montrose is currently going for $200+/bottle. Shrewd buyers will snatch up this notable '2nd Wine.'

Wine AdvocateOne 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.

Wine EnthusiastMontrose's second wine has something of the same gravity as the top wine from the estate. 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,

Wine SpectatorA textbook example of the vintage and appellation, showing a bright savory edge, a chalky spine and mouthwatering damson plum, red currant and cherry pit notes. Displays enough grip to warrant short-term cellaring, and should stretch out well over the mid-term. Best from 2015 through 2024.
