Bordeaux 2009 Release: La Dame de Montrose

Described as “already irresistible” by Robert Parker, this second wine of the sought-after Château Montrose is a true crowd pleaser. An appealing and attractive wine, it has also released at a very reasonable price.

2009 La Dame de Montrose, St-Estèphe
£360 per case of 12 bottles in bond

The second wine from top St-Estèphe property, Château Montrose. Made from an atypical 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, it is closed at present, but what is on show is attractive. A pretty, orange-peel-scented character on the mouth, with attractive weight and acidity. The high Merlot content shows itself in a softer finish than many.
Drinking: 2014-2025
Robert Parker: 91-93* points (Wine Advocate #188)
