Château de Gironville 2011 Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois


Château de Gironville is the perfect mid-range Haut-Médoc that you will love drinking while realising how good it is for the price. A modern red wine with elegant aromas of black fruit and a solid structure provided by gentle oak. After 6 years improving in the bottle, now is the most perfect timing to drink it. A really great discovery!

Expert.pngWhat experts say

16/20 "Sister to Belle-Vue. Dark crimson. More lifted than many of its peers. Then rather wild fruit and very natural acidity. Overall it tastes much more natural and vineyard-driven than many. Rather unusual for an Haut-Médoc."

16/20 "Good supple fruit, no hard edges, forward but good future. Drink 2014-2020."

89/100 "The black currant and cherry paste aromas and flavors run along, with charcoal and roasted cedar notes. The solid finish shows a hint of savory. Drink now through 2016."
