Tasting Notes

The 2016 La Dame de Montrose is plump, juicy and seductive from the very first taste. Bright floral notes give the wine lovely aromatic expansiveness. Sweet red cherry, plum, pomegranate and sweet spice notes are all pushed forward. In many vintages, La Dame is a smaller-scale version of the Grand Vin, but in 2016 it is almost unusually polished and sensual, an impression that is enhanced by voluptuous, almost opulent fruit and ripe, silky tannins. In 2016, La Dame is also dominated by Merlot, which no doubt contributes to its personality. Tasted two times.

Score: 89 - 92

Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com 25 April 2017

52% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, 11% Petit Verdot. 42% of the crop was used here with 22% set aside for the 3rd wine instead. Deep ruby colour then ripe savoury fruits in the mouth and chunky tannins on the finish.

Score: 90 - 92

Albany Vintners 19 April 2017

A linear and fine rendition of Montrose’s second wine with blueberry and blackberry character. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a juicy finish. Structured. Racy.

Score: 91 - 92
