Château Andron Blanquet 2009 St-Estèphe Cru Bourgeois

Château Andron Blanquet is one of the oldest vineyards in Saint-Estèphe. Since 1971, it has been the property of the Audoy family who also owns the neighbouring estate Château Cos-Labory. The 2009 shows a slightly reserved nose of red fruits, vanilla and toast. On the palate it is strong and powerful, which is very Saint-Estèphe in style, but well balanced with rich and melted tannins. Highly recommended to any Saint-Estèphe amateur!

15.5/20 "Blackish crimson. Decidedly reserved on the nose. Very dry start. Pretty tough, though true to its appellation. In classical mould and only for those in love with St-Estephe's rigour."

Wine-Spectator.jpg

88-91/100 "Some berry and fresh herb aromas. Full and chewy, with slightly rustic tannins, but interesting in style."

Château Segue-Longue Monnier is a small estate located in the northern part of the Médoc. The vineyard is being converted to Biodynamic agriculture, which is not that common in Bordeaux! The 2009 is a medium-bodied wine, nose of spices and undergrowth, round and fine tannins. Lovely long finish of dried fruits. Regularly praised by critics and winner of...

Château Doyac is an excellent Cru Bourgeois to have at home. With 70% of Merlot, it is round, fruity and has a lot of personality. Aromas of red cherry and raspberry on the nose, structure and spices on the palate. It shows a very decent complexity for this price range and we definitely recommend this 2009, which is one of the best vintage ever in Bordeaux.

"An excellent cru bourgeois" according to Robert Parker. Located between Margaux and Saint-Julien, Lamothe-Bergeron has a fine gravel terroir that gives an elegant and classic Haut-Médoc. Red and black fruit, notes of cedar wood, tobacco and sweet tannins. Finishes with a light anise touch. Simply lovely.

Tasting starts with a very expressive nose of strawberry jam and spices. Château de Villegeorge 2010 - an outstanding vintage in Bordeaux - is a fruity Haut-Médoc, where fruit aromas are nicely balanced by tannins and a hint of toast from the ageing in oak barrels. Already great to drink today, it also has a great potential of cellaring. This wine has...
