One 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.||Although Jean Delmas remains a consultant at Montrose, he has yielded his primary responsibilities over to a younger staff, but he still believes the 2010 Montrose is one of the all-time great wines ever produced at this estate, equaling or exceeding the quality of the 1929, 1945, 1959, 1961, 1989, 1990 or 2009.

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. Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

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

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. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 36% of total production. Very deep crimson. Lovely scented top note and then sumptuously round texture. Fresh and lively with good muscles. Excellent balance and really very flattering without being overripe or sweet. It finishes dry and minerally. Fine skeined. Really a very fine wine indeed – well done! Provided you don’t mind a lack of flesh in the middle... 13.7% jancisrobinson.com

Rich smoky cassis fruit, good middle sweetness and lift, less depth than expected. Drink 2015-20. (16 points) Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

The deep ruby purple 2010 La Dame de Montrose exudes aromas of vibrant blackberries, cherries, plum, spices and hint of cedar, oak, followed on the palate by tobacco and cocoa flavours. The ripe velvety tannins give the wine a silky finish. This is a very detailed and beautifully made Dame, all delicacy and finesse, with great length. Jeannie Cho Lee MW asianpalate.com
