La Dame de Montrose Saint-Estèphe (Château Montrose GCC 2nd wine)

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.
Consistently reliable and reaching maturity sooner, the wine was created in 1986 in tribute to Yvonne Charmolue, who ran Château Montrose single-handedly from 1944 to 1960.
2015 is a vintage among the great years of Château Montrose.
