Château Lestage

Cru Bourgeois Listrac-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

2018 vintage. This historical estate has been in the hands of the Chanfreau family for over 50 years. They also own Château Fonréaud in Listrac and 2 Moulis estates (Châteaux Caroline and Chemin Royal). Lestage is the only Listrac granted Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel in the 2020 classification. The 2018 vintage is a blend of 62% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot. The nose is a bit oaky at first, but the wine starts to truly shine after an hour in the glass, so take your time or decant. Cherries, cassis and cedar wood in the nose. The fruit is concentrated and layered, embedded in a powerful tannic structure with very good balancing acidity. While the warmth of the vintage is unmistakable, there is no sign of jamminess. Impressively long finish too. Incredible value at 11,90 euros. If you open this in 7 or 8 years you will curse yourself that you didn't buy more. Kudos to the owners and consulting enologist Antoine Medeville. Abv. 14,5 %. — 4 years ago

Château Caroline

Cru Bourgeois Moulis en Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Owned by the Chanfreau family (also Lestage and Fonréaud in Listrac). A blend of Merlot (65%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (35%). Still a bit on the oaky side, but the wine handles it well. The red fruit is juicy and fresh, the tannins ripe and the wine has elegance. Wait a few years until it fully absorbs the oak or decant if you drink it now. — 4 years ago

Le Cygne Blanc Listrac-Médoc White Bordeaux Blend 2014

Smell of honey, flowers, and caramel. Year and a half in oak clearly noticeable but not offensive. Kiwi, orange peel, tanginess. Toasted marshmallow and v light almond. I mean the nerds aren't into oakiness but this is serious wine. Muscadet-esque — 8 years ago
