Wine Advocate

89-91 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate: "Composed of 49% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2017 La Dame de Montrose is deep garnet-purple colored with a very fragrant nose of violets, lavender and dark chocolate over a core of cassis, Provence herbs and smoked meats. The palate is medium-bodied and very refreshing with ripe, very soft tannins, elegant and refined with a perfumed finish." 4/18

Neil Martin

88-90 Points, Neal Martin, "The 2017 La Dame de Montrose represents 40% of the total production this year. The Merlot, which constitutes nearly half the blend, occupies the driving seat on the nose with copious black cherry, raspberry and cedar scents that blossom in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a ripe, almost confit-like entry. It feels harmonious with fine tannin, perhaps not the length of say the 2014 or 2016 La Dame de Montrose, a little more compact in style at the moment, loosening up and gaining more harmony by the time of my second visit in mid-April. It certainly has pleasing purity and it should drink well over the next decade. Drink 2019 - 2030." 5/18

Antonio Galloni

87-89 Points, Antonio Galloni, "The 2017 La Dame de Montrose is powerful, dense and also a bit rough around the edges. This is an especially hearty vintage for La Dame. In 2017, the Merlots were really affected by the early September rains. Much of the fruit was either bulked out or put into the generic Saint-Estèphe. As a result, Cabernet Sauvignon plays a larger role in the blend than it usually does. It will be interesting to see if the 2017 acquires more finesse in aging. Today, I have my doubts it will. La Dame is 40% of the chateau's production. The blend is 49% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot." 5/18
