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. Consistently reliable and reaching maturity sooner, the wine was created in 1983 in tribute to Yvonne Charmolüe, who ran Château Montrose single-handedly from 1944 to 1960. Production varies from one year to another but accounts on average for 40 à 45% of the total production of the Montrose vineyard.

Tasting notes:
The nose opens on discreet, elegant and warm chocolate and mocha notes, developing fresher aromas of blackcurrant, ripe fruit and dill on airing, together with perfectly integrated oak.
The palate is bright, supple and clean, the velvety, beautifully balanced tannic structure in full harmony with the toasted brioche and liquorice flavours. The fruit flavours remain on the relatively long and very fresh finish.
