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."

Located in a village near Pauillac, the vineyard was completely re-planted in 1983 with the best rootstocks adapted to the local soil, in order to have a wine of a high...

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.

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...
