"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.

What experts say  
  16 "Dense bright red. Round and fresh. More forward than most but vigorous. Eerily forward. But a nice package. Minerally."  
  87 "An excellent cru bourgeois made from two grapes, 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, this under-$20 wine is a classic. Medium to full-bodied with notes of cedar wood, unsmoked cigar tobacco, and red and black currants, this wine has rich fruit, sweet tannins and an attractive finish. Drink it over the next 5-8 years."  
  
89-92 "Concentrated with apple wood frame highlighting plum kernel notes, cassis and black cherry. The finish is long and thin with charcoal notes and slightly aniseed."
  
  91 "With its beautiful intense color, this concentrated wine has a firm structure on the palate and firm tannins . Powerful by its maturity, it reveals notes of black fruits ripe and shows good acidity on the finish."  
  15 "Dark colour, almost black. Expressive nose. Beautiful mouth texture, ripe fruit, fine and elegant structure with freshness. Silky tannins."

Château Doyac is the perfect medium-range Cru Bourgeois to have at home. Its 75% of Merlot makes it round, fruity, and gives 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 love it: a great wine that will never let you down!
