ABOUT THE WINE
Originally a hunting estate owned by Alexandre de Segur, known as La Lande de l’Escargeon, the estate that would come to be known as Montrose passed into the ownership of Etienne Dumoulin in 1778, whose son built the château. The name was derived from the heather-clad hills, which would turn pink when the flowers were in bloom; sailors on ships passing through the Gironde Estuary called the hill upon which the château was built ‘la Mont Rose’. By 1815 the estate was regarded as one of the finest in Saint-Estèphe. Many owners later, the estate was purchased by the Bouygues brothers in 2006; renovations have followed, including work to expand the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon planted. The second-wine was first released in 1983, and typically accounts for 30% of the production of the estate.

TASTING NOTES
Bright ruby colour, with cassis, chocolate and raspberry aromas, and a floral, red-fruited palate with blackcurrant, cedar, liquorice and dusty, fine-grained tannin on the finish. A classic style, ready for drinking from around 2021.

FOOD PAIRING
Best with rich stews and beef-dishes.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Unusually long-lived and powerful for a second wine, La Dame de Montrose offers superb value for the region.
