Dame de Montrose 2001

Main characteristics of the vintage
The winter was exceptionally mild and rainy. Spring augured a beautiful growth; however, episodes of high heat in June, July, and August slowed down the evolution of the maturity. Despite the fears aroused by the winter, the phytosanitary state of the grapes was good, and by the harvest season, the grapes were in good condition.
The wines were very fat, with an exceptional density and viscosity predicting a great potential of ageing. The nose hints black fruits and wood. Massively full-bodied, the wine was elegant with a long finish.
