La Dame de Montrose Saint Estephe 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Estephe|
|Brand||La Dame de Montrose|
Tannins are very present in this dense wine. But so are vibrant, crisp black-currant flavors and acidity. The combination of tannins and fresh acidity will drive this second wine of Château Montrose forward. Drink from 2023.
The 2016 La Dame de Montrose is deep garnet-purple colored and gives up cassis, earth, tilled soil, truffles and chocolate-covered cherries on the nose. Medium-bodied, the palate is firm, elegant and restrained with a mineral finish.
Juicy and well-formed, with damson plum and cherry compote flavors infused liberally with warm stone, tobacco and iron notes. Fresh and open on the finish. Drink now through 2028.
