Heiner Lobenberg über:
La Dame de Montrose 2016


Lobenberg: Der Zweitwein von Château Montrose. 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot. Trotz des hohen Merlotanteils eine deutliche Cabernet-Orientierung. Johannisbeere, Cassis, etwas Veilchen, dann auch etwas Kirsche. Fein am Mund, insgesamt geschliffen, ein durchaus kleiner schicker Wein, aber es gibt leider so viele Bessere für weniger Geld. Trotzdem, wenn man ihn später einmal zu trinken kriegt, sicher immer mit Freude zu trinken, 93/100


Wine Enthusiast über: La Dame de Montrose

-- Wine Enthusiast: 93–95. Barrel Sample. While the wine has opulence and richness, it also has a more severe side that is classic for Montrose. It maintains the packed fruit of the vintage in both tannins and juicy blackberry fruit. This is a wine for drinking after 10–12 years. 93-95/100


Suckling über: La Dame de Montrose

-- Suckling: Extremely perfumed and beautiful with bright, violet and plum aromas. Full to medium body, very fine and firm tannins and transparent fruit. Linear and refined with a very long finish. Second wine of Château Montrose. Try in 2022. 93/100


Galloni über: La Dame de Montrose

-- Galloni: A gorgeous second wine, the 2016 La Dame de Montrose is incredibly expressive today. Supple, radiant and inviting, La Dame has all the potential to be an overachiever in this vintage. Today, it is quite open, and, even more importantly, flat-out delicious. In some moments, La Dame is rather nuanced, while at other times it is a bit more potent. It will be interesting to see what aging in bottle brings, but one thing is certain; the 2016 La Dame is a stellar wine. Don't miss it. 93/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: La Dame de Montrose

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2016 Dame de Montrose is also gorgeous, and the second wines of Bordeaux continue to gain in quality. A blend of 52% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, aged in 30% new oak, this beauty has impressive amounts of creme de cassis, graphite, violets, and damp earth that give way to a medium to full-bodied, layered, pure, and seamless beauty that has real class. It’s well worth seeking out and will hopefully help you to keep your hands off the grand vin for at least a few years. 93/100


Parker über: La Dame de Montrose

-- Parker: The 2016 La Dame de Montrose is a blend of 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 52% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 11% Petit Verdot. It is often a difficult Deuxième Vin to taste en primeur, and it often meliorates considerably during its élevage. Here, the aromatics took some time to coalesce in the glass: blackberry, graphite and a noticeable oyster shell aroma. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip in the mouth, grainy in texture with very fine balance towards the finish where the quality of the vintage showed through. Doubtless those aromatics will improve and gain harmony by the time it is in bottle, and indeed, when I returned for a second visit I discerned a little more finesse and prettiness on the finish. This is a delightful La Dame. Tasted twice. 90-92/100

Mein Winzer


In einer der besten Lagen der Appellation, hoch oben, mit wunderbarem Blick auf die Gironde liegt Château Montrose. 2006 fand ein Besitzerwechsel statt. Martin Bouygues, einer der erfolgreichsten Unternehmer Frankreichs, erwarb dieses legendäre Weingut für eine unbekannte Summe.
