A gorgeous second wine, the 2016 Chateau La Dame de Montrose is incredibly expressive today. Supple, radiant and inviting, La Dame Montrose 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 wine 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 De Montrose is a stellar wine.
This 2016 Chateau La Dame de Montrose has a blend of 52% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, aged in 30% new oak. Drink from 2023.
