Wine Advocate 91 points - Over the last twenty years, Montrose’s second wine, La Dame de Montrose has been an excellent buy. The 2009 La Dame de Montrose (almost all Merlot with a tiny bit of Cabernet Sauvignon) is a seductive, succulent effort revealing silky tannins, abundant blueberry and blackberry fruit notes intermixed with notions of damp earth, truffles and camphor, and an appealing, luscious personality. Enjoy it over the next 10-15 years. (Feb 2012)
This is a vintage where the changes in management and ownership are in evidence. That dense, deep, opaque quality; that seems to hint at things to come. A powerhouse returns to greatness.
