Château Saint-Hilaire 2009 Médoc Cru Bourgeois


Château Saint-Hilaire was born in 1983 when Dutch man Adrien Uijttewaal settled in Northern Médoc. After a few year of supplying the local cooperative he decided to bottle hi own wine and immediately earned a deserved recognition for critics. His 2009 delivers a nose of ripe fruits and grilled notes. In the mouth, it’s a well-balanced combination of dark fruit, oak and perfectly ripe tannins. A true Médoc wine and excellent value for money.

Expert.pngWhat experts say  

15.5/20 "50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 45% Merlot. Cedary mix of dark fruit and oak on the nose, just a hint of herbaceousness. Dry but fine tannins and juicily fluid and fresh on the finish. Balanced in a lighter style."

Guide Hachette des Vins 2013 "Adrien Uijttewaal settled in Medoc in 1983 and at first supplying his grapes to the cooperative. He now vinifies his own production and proposes here a 2009 with a majority of Cabernet-Sauvignon (50%). The nose combines ripe fruits (black cherry) with fine grilled notes. Supported by a solid tannic body and well-balanced, this wine will be appreciated after three years of cellaring."
