Château Haut Batailley

Château Cantemerle

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Plenty of time in the bottle but still somewhat of a rowdy teenager. Deep red, bordering on purple in colour, relatively savoury in flavour with dark fruits, minerals and a liquorice undertone. There’s still quite a bit of tannin and acidity but neither are overpowering. The issue is that all of the above features have not yet fully blended together and although the finish is restrained it is also a bit rough around the edges. I think this will smooth out over time and there are still many years in this. — 9 days ago

Château La Lagune

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Enough concentration. Burned and mushroom flavor. 2010 is good right now. @, TMH, 200215 — 9 days ago

Clos du Jaugueyron

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Inky dense cassis flavors that just continue on but it’s not ready to show more layers. The graphite suggests it, and so does the natural wine press, but it’s still unidimensional another year on. — 6 days ago

@Dawn E. Absolutely. Belle-Vue is the neighbour of Giscours/Margaux. Each Belle-Vue is a gem in the cellar !

Beautiful Bordeaux smooth but strong tannins. A bit of cigar and leather. Gorgeous — 10 days ago

Château Citran

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Delectable Wine

The 2017 Citran has a powerful nose of black fruit laced with peppermint and light loamy aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and perhaps more refinement than suggested by the aromatics. As it coheres in the glass, this turns into a very fine Haut-Médoc that is probably punching above its weight. Very fine. (Neal Martin, Vinous, February 2020)

Château La Lagune

Moulin de la Lagune Haut-Médoc Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

Definitely a superwell made wine. Lacking complexity, probably due to an early opening. Very enjoyable and fresh. It would get easily 94 if wasn’t for the short and harsh finish — 6 days ago
