Tonight I have opened the 2018 Château Montrose La Dame de Montrose. This wine is from the left bank of Bordeaux, St.Estephe. A blend of 52% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc.
The nose hase very expressive notes of black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, blaxk currant, herbaceous notes, violets, chocolate and mint.
The palates gives us notes of black cherry, blackberry, black currant, bell pepper, graphite and underbrush.
This wine is medium to full bodied with a silky, velvety mouthfeel and beautifully balanced, medium+ acidity and medium+ polished tannins that move seamlessly into a long dark fruit spicy finish. Well, Happy Birthday to me. This is the wine I chose to have even though it was four days after my birth date. I wish everyone a healthy and safe weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — a month ago

I admit I’m sometimes a skeptic of clever labels, and seeing as I bought it a terrifically hip natty and natty-adjacent wine store I confess I went into this with a bad attitude but day-ummmm this is a thirst-quenching gulp of Savoie fare.
Lemon-y, light, seashells and daffodils it is springtime in a bottle which is astounding considering the guy skiing down the piste but I need to look up what the French says as I’m so many years past AP French lit I barely know how to say merde this is brilliant. You know what? It has this tickle though. Like it’s teasing at effervescence but it’s such a super-étoile it doesn’t need to sparkle to shine. — a month ago
