LA DAME DE MONTROSE 2011
2ND CHÂTEAU MONTROSE WINE
In the first quarter of the 18th century, Alexandre de Segur owned the estates of Latour, Lafite, and Mouton. It is said of him that he is the "Prince of the vineyards";
He bequeaths them to his son Nicolas Alexandre. By his marriage, Nicolas de Ségur comes into possession of the Château de Calon.
It was not until 1778 that he ceded Calon to Etienne Dumoulin.Theodore, son of Stephen, persuaded that this moor is full of promise, clears it, plants in vines, builds a castle, which will be called Montrose.
Today, since 2006, brothers Martin and Olivier Bouygues are in Montrose. They are keen to continue producing this exceptional vintage.
Merlot 74%, Cabernet Sauvignon 26%.
Tasting notes :
The color is a deep, deep ruby. The first nose is discreet, elegant, warm, with notes of chocolate and mocha.More fresh notes of blackcurrant, ripe fruit and dill appear to stir. The woody aromas blend perfectly with the whole. The palate is lively, supple and straight. The velvety tannic structure, well balanced, harmonizes fully with the toasty aromas of brioche and liquorice. The final, quite long, remains on the fruit and a lot of freshness.
