Haut Médoc, Médoc

Château Sociando-Mallet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Open for nearly an hour and the nose is closed for business. Medium/Heavy body and flavors coming through tho. Blackberry. Big cherry/plum combination. Choco cake. Hint o’ mint. Obsequious richness front-end loaded with the ample tannins jumping into the hot tub at the midway point. The best thing about this young pup is the balance. Could still go for a little more on the back end but the first two-thirds is so nice, I’ve laminated a hall pass with its’ name on it. — 3 days ago

Château Larrivaux

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

It’s moved into more brooding darkness in the past few years. Black fruit and a bit of spice, earthy notes, menthol and a touch of liquorice. A little short on the depth and finish, but it’s nice drinking. — 17 days ago

Château Haut Coteau

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Great, inky hue. Unhurried, musty nose with a hint of prunes. Medium-bodied. High plains drift…er…dryer with big tannins and not giving up any fruit other than the dark side: blackberries, plum and cassis currently. — 5 days ago

Château Lanessan

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Very classical in style, good density and length, all the cabernet stuff is there, the wine holds really well and works great with food. If you like the rich and bold pass your way, otherwise give it a try, some of the best value of Bordeaux can be found here. Really good stuff. — 20 days ago

Château La Lagune

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Medium bodied. Very tight…even after being open an hour. Plum, kirsch, cherry in the nose. Pretty darned dry-big tannins. This one has miles to go before it sleeps. — 24 days ago

Château Saint-Christoly

Médoc 2014

Red currant and toast and cedar and tobacco. This is a nice médoc nose. The palate is well made with a good balance and a bright fruit, a nice tannins layer in midpalate leaving a slight drying effect, and a long médoc finish with oak, black currant and that disruptive layer. We had it over a plate of cheese and charcuterie, next to the estuaire in... Saint christoly, right next to the estate and side by side with the owner. Cool experience! — 2 days ago
