    One of the best second wines, and possibly the best since the 1990 is the 2010 La Dame de Montrose. This represents 36% of the production and is a blend of two grapes ' 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot. A superb second wine, opulent and substantively textured, it shares more in common with a flamboyant, exuberant year such as 2009 than most 2010s. Dense purple, its oodles of fruit, luxurious mouthfeel and terrific finish make it a sleeper of the vintage. It's a wine to buy in abundant quantities and drink over the next 10-15+ years.

    64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 36% of total production. Very deep crimson. Lovely scented top note and then sumptuously round texture. Fresh and lively with good muscles. Excellent balance and really very flattering without being overripe or sweet. It finishes dry and minerally. Fine skeined. Really a very fine wine indeed - well done! Provided you don't mind a lack of flesh in the middle...

    A textbook example of the vintage and appellation, showing a bright savory edge, a chalky spine and mouthwatering damson plum, red currant and cherry pit notes. Displays enough grip to warrant short-term cellaring, and should stretch out well over the mid-term. Best from 2015 through 2024.

Located in the heart of the Saint-Estephe appellation, Second Growth classified Chateau Montrose has been in the hands of the Charmoule family for over 100 years. The family has continued to follow age-old winemaking traditions of the Medoc with spectacular results. The vineyards also benefit from the mild microclimate created by the nearby Gironde estuary, which helps temper the climate, ensuring the grapes ripen under ideal conditions. Considered one of the top Saint-Estephe producers, Chateau Montrose is prized for its classic Claret style wines, big fruit and full structure. The wines are also known for their incredibly tannic nature, allowing them to stand up to years of aging. Chateau Montrose makes a second wine called La Dame de Montrose.
