Château Doyac 2009 Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois


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.

Expert.pngWhat experts say  

16.5/20 "70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Attractive presentation and useful information on the back label. Firm crimson. Serious, meaty nose that is more savoury than most Merlots. Very attractive combination of attractiveness and seriousness. Tannins definitely present but well managed."

16/20 "Powerful aromas of coffee bean oakiness and fresh blackcurrant. Packed with nice concentration of sappy black fruit. Well-assembled and commercial claret."

89/100 "Solid, with wine, steeped black currant and bitter cherry flavors liberally laced with tobacco leaf and singed apple wood notes. A lightly firm, nicely structured edge marks the finish. Best from 2013 through 2019."

14.5/20 "Grilled notes on the nose. Fruity and balanced palate, with a beautiful freshness"
