The 2015 La Dame de Montrose 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.

Polished tannins with lovely integration and finesse. Full body, round texture. Persistent finish. Second wine of Montrose. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

More Cabernet Sauvignon than usual in this wine: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot. Picked from 15 September to 8 October. Deep crimson. Scented and sleek. Very ripe and flattering. Not at all like the classic Montrose style - presumably deliberately made to be drunk young. Polished and even rather sweet! Not that St-Estèphe... Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2030

Dense floral and cassis nose with a minerally graphite base. Very good natural richness of fruit and great purity of expression. A very serious, very exciting second wine. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2021-2035

trose 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. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2022-2035
