Saint Estéphe, La Dame Montrose 2015

DKK 375,00 inkl. moms

Saint Estéphe, La Dame Montrose 2015 is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot that was picked between 15 September and 8 October. It has a perfumed, floral and pure bouquet with black cherries, blueberry and violets, all with commendable delineation for a deuxième vin. The palate is well balanced with a more sumptuous texture compared to its fellow Saint Estèphes, thanks to that lush Merlot that forms the core of this wine. It has commendable energy and feels approachable, therefore with 3-4 years in bottle, you should have yourself a fine if not exceptional La Dame de Montrose. Drink 2019-2032

Score: 88/90 Neal Martin

A very refined red with berries, chocolate and walnuts. Full body and a round, juicy texture. Spicy and salty. Delicious already. Needs two or three years to come together. Second wine of Château Montrose.

Score: 94 James Suckling

The 2015 La Dame de Montrose is a very pretty second wine. Dark, radiant and open-knit, yet with plenty of nuance, the 2015 offers lovely precision and silkiness throughout. The wine’s mid-weight structure suggests it will drink well relatively early. Raspberry jam, white pepper and mineral notes add the closing shades of complexity. The 2015 is an attractive Saint-Estèphe, although it lacks the depth and overall follow through of the very best versions, but it makes up for that with its finesse. Tasted four times.

Score: 89/91 Antoni Galloni

Montrose appears to have taken the slightly tricky harvest conditions in its stride in 2015,
producing some stellar wines. This second label is spicy, peppery and intense, with a bloody,
ferrous note to its tannins. It’s austere, yet wonderfully, unambiguously St. Estèphe. Drink: 2022-35
