Château Montrose Saint-Estèphe 2ème Grand Cru Classé

Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) Made to the same rigorous standards as the first wine, from grapes grown in the same vineyard, La Dame de Montrose is the estate’s second label. Supple and silky Merlot generally predominates in the varietal mix. Its very pronounced red fruit aromas and flavours reflect another expression of the terroir in a distinctive style which is less elaborately complex than that of the first wine.

    First bottle corked. Second bottle: Full ruby-red. Dusty aromas of plum syrup and leather, with a distinct whiff of less-than-perfect cooperage. Then fat, sweet and lush, but a bit lacking in delineation. Finishes with a slightly dry edge. An awkward showing, but does not seem to be corked. Drink now through 2010.
