2001 La Dame de Montrose st. St. Estephe.

2001 La Dame de Montrose, Made to the same rigorous standards as the first wine, from grapes grown in the same vineyard, La Dame de Montrose is the estate’s second label. Supple and silky Merlot generally predominates in the varietal mix. Its very pronounced red fruit aromas and flavours reflect another expression of the terroir in a distinctive style which is less elaborately complex than that of the first wine.
Main characteristics of the vintage
The winter was exceptionally mild and rainy. Spring augured a beautiful growth; however, episodes of high heat in June, July, and August slowed down the evolution of the maturity.
Despite the fears aroused by the winter, the phytosanitary state of the grapes was good, and by the harvest season, the grapes were in good condition.
The wines were very fat, with an exceptional density and viscosity predicting a great potential of ageing. The nose hints black fruits and wood. Massively full-bodied, the wine was elegant with a long finish.
Period of harvest September 24th October 9th

Blend
Cabernet-Sauvignon: 63 %, Merlot: 33 %, Cabernet franc: 4 %
