Château Haut Myles

Château d'Agassac

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

2018 vintage. This fairytale Château is owned by insurance company Groupama who brought in renowned consultant Stéphane Derononcourt in 2014. Not sure about the exact blend of this vintage, probably mainly Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and a bit of Cabernet Franc. This wine starts to shine already after 10 minutes in the glass. The perfume is very fresh (especially considering the warm vintage) and flowery. In the mouth it is very elegant, with juicy cassis, soft tannin and very good length. If you are looking for a blockbuster this is not your wine, if you fancy Margaux-like finesse it's well worth your 16 euros. Very moderate alcohol for the vintage (13 % abv.). — 2 days ago

Château Lanessan

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

2009 vintage. Classic left bank Bordeaux in a great ripe vintage. Drinking very well, but no hurry to drink this. Lanessan has always been very reliable, and it is getting better in recent vintages. Very good value too. — 15 days ago

Cuvée Jean Gautreau Sociando-Mallet Haut-Medoc 2005

Underrated delicious Bordeaux that evolves through time in tasting and (must be) in aging. — 22 days ago

Château Sociando-Mallet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Tar, cigar, cedar, black currant, meat juice. Wow what a muscular Medoc nose! The palate is a bit underwhelming considering the strength of the nose but it's still very enjoyable (this is neither 2009 nor 2010 🤔). Strong acid drive, nice matter and width, bright black currant all along, grainy tannins but rather short finish with a bitterness which is a bit on the green side, showing a bit of a vegetal thing which could be connected to, or understood as a bit of a lack of ripeness. This is subtle, so it doesn't make it unbearable, but it's certainly not as brilliant as 2009 and 2010. It is very high standard nonetheless! We paired it with homemade meatballs (with cumin and zucchini), meat gravy and mashed pumpkin/potatoes. Great pairing — a day ago

Love SM, often very good in lesser years

@Peter van den Besselaar exactly, extremely consistent. Maybe the best non grand cru in terms of consistence. And the price tag hasn't changed in 15 years

Château Malescasse

Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Great vintage for Malescasse. Very primal and coarse, showing a rough outer shell of earth, coffee and barrel char notes. There’s a nicely concentrated core of dark fruit and licorice that takes time to expose. Tannins are chewy but ripe. This will be great in a few years. Love the power and intensity here. A Bdx drinker’s Bdx. — 2 days ago

Château La Lagune

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Very good to drink now, open and accessible. Tastes like a higher grade left bank, dark fruits, polished tannins and medium bodied. Recommended and can be drink now or kept for another 5 to 7 years. — 13 days ago
