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.

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"

"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...

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...
