Château Segue-Longue Monnier 2009 Médoc Cru Bourgeois


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 several awards, it’s a little gem we highly recommend!

16/20 "This property is being converted to organic viticulture apparently. Brilliant crimson. Already quite a broad panoply of aromas though not one of the most dense on the palate. Very lively and vivacious - almost fizzes with excitement. Still a bit chewy on the finish but excellent integrity."

Guide-Hachette.jpg

"Aged in a resolutely modern circular cellar, this 2009 is the product of a work in the vineyard and cellar that follows the rules of biodynamics (certification in progress). If the nose is somewhat dominated by barrel-ageing (spices, undergrowth), the rest of the tasting reveals a wine with fine and round tannins, the pleasant finish of is accompanied by a touch of dried fruit . Try it in a year or two on a hare stew."

“One of my favourite under-the-radar Bordeaux in top vintages.” Robert Parker. Château d'Aurilhac is a great Cru Bourgeois in a great vintage so the combination can only be excellent. 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...

After a few year of supplying the local cooperative he decided to bottle hi own wine and immediately earned a deserved recognition for critics.

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...
