This wine is out of stock

£ 14.20 tax incl.

Situated right next to Saint-Julien appellation, this Château selects grapes very carefully to produce a classic Haut-Medoc with a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2010 is medium-bodied and shows intense flavours of ripe red fruit and hints of cedar wood with smooth tannins which provide a very subtle balance and a nice finish.

A word about the domain
The Lanessan vineyard has been within the Bouteiller Family since the 18th century and is now managed by a woman, Paz Espejo, who has contributed to the renewal of the Chateau in the last decade. It is definitely one of the rising stars of the Haut-Médoc appellation and is producing very harmonious wines where the fine tannins are perfectly integrated in the body of the wine.
 
What experts say
About the domain
Bettane & Dessauve: 1* (Serious production)

About the wine
Jancis Robinson: 15.5 (13 Apr 2011 by JR)
"A little sweet and stodgy but competent. Drying tannins on the end even though it starts almost sickly sweet. Reasonable persistence."

Robert Parker: 87 (Wine Advocate #205, Feb 2013)
"Dark ruby/plum colored, with evolved notes of cedar wood, earth and underbrush, this wine possesses the classic tobacco leaf and black currants of a mid-level Medoc. It is medium-bodied, has good ripeness and should age nicely for 15 or more years."

Decanter: 16 (April 2011)
“Quite firm, smoky cassis fruit, fine middle depth and elegant structure."

Bettane & Dessauve: 16

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!
