Château Haut Breton Larigaudière 2011 - Margaux Cru Bourgeois

This is the flagship wine of the family and it has all the characteristics of a great Margaux. The nose is explosive with a combination of fruits, spices and toast that continues on the palate. The structure is rich and powerful, yet very elegant. It then shows a persistent finish, calling for more. Very well made and ready to drink now, it will also age well. Margaux is one of the most sought-after appellations in Médoc and usually offers expensive wines. Such a quality Margaux at this price is a real steal!

Expert.pngWhat experts say  
Jancis-Robinson.jpg16.5+/20 “94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot. Good, powerful, rich, opulent nose. Very convincing. Delivers tasty ripe fruit on the palate too. Certainly modern. Seamless balance. Perhaps just a bit too ripe for traditionalists, but in terms of enjoyment, this hits the spot. (RH)”  
90/100 "With considerable new wood flavors, this is a ripely opulent wine. It has weight, rich tannins, a smooth surface as its skims over the black fruits. The acidity, sweet black plum jelly, both give a warm, ripe character to the wine." (2009 vintage)
DWWA 2014 Bronze.jpgBronze Medal at Decanter World Wine Awards 2014 "Lifted cassis and floral-leafy aromas. Still youthful palate, sweet, elegant and nicely silky. Fresh, easy-going concentration and a pleasing sense of harmony."

  This Château Tayet is worth much more than its simple "Bordeaux Supérieur" appellation. Coming from a terroir near Margaux, it has elegance, a great balance with ripe fruit aromas and wooden notes. It is the perfect house wine that we have been looking for; definitely a smashing hit!

Second wines can sometimes represent a great opportunity, especially in an amazing vintage such as 2010. La Dame de Baladoz 2010 is a lively and vibrant red offering elegant aromas of red fruit and cedar box in the background. Very well made wine with soft tannins, perfect for any amateur of Bordeaux, and Saint Emilion in particular.

Château Tour Baladoz is a lovely and typical Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, property of the Shepper family - also owner of Château Haut Breton Larigaudière in Margaux. The blend is dominated by merlot, making it a round and fruity red with notes of spring flowers and a nice wooden touch. The 2011 vintage has had time to assimilate its 18 months in oak barrels...
