Château de Villegeorge 2010 - Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois

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 received many rewards from various critics and we definitely understand why.

86/100 "From another member of the Lurton family (probably the biggest clan in all of Bordeaux), this blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 21% Merlot offers attractive black olive and black currant notes intermixed with a hint of spring flowers, garrigue and underbrush. Drink it over the next 5-6 years."

89/100 "This has a dark, dense core of bramble, currant paste and fig preserves, all framed by lively roasted apple wood and anise notes. The racy finish showcases the graphite edge of the vintage. Drink now through 2019. – JM"

90/100 "This fine, rich, fruity wine is from a chateau controlled by the Lurton family. It is solid, concentrated and dense, packed with blackberry flavor. Deliciously juicy now, it has the tannins and acidity that suggest it is capable of aging for many years."

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.

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...
