The 2012 La Dame de Montrose makes for a lovely introduction to the wines of Montrose. There is plenty of the estate's typical heft and richness in the glass, but the mid-weight pliancy lends an element of suppleness. Smoke, tar, licorice, black cherries and plum flow through to the powerful finish. Far from an easygoing 2012, La Dame is going to require at least a few years in the cellar. Hints of game, smoke, licorice and iron add the closing shades of nuance. Drink 2018-2032.
The second wine of Chateau Montrose. With new owners and a new wine-making team at Montrose, this label has benefitted greatly from a more serious selection process at this famous Chateau.
