Haut-Medoc

This is the more southerly part of the Medoc that includes the prestigious communes of Margaux, Pauillac, St-Estephe, and St-Julien, as well as Listrac and Moulis. It includes four of the five First Growths, as well other extremely prestigious estates. Cabernet Sauvignon makes up the greatest proportion of most of the wines.

  • Chateau Citran 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Leafy, bright and fresh on the nose with berry aromas in a lighter scale. Very fresh, pure and easy going in the mouth with good fruit that shows a touch of herbal nuance. rather small scaled but well balanced and easy to drink. 86pts Read More

  • Chateau de Camensac 1994

    Snoothrank:

    Lovely with herb and earth on the nose, then bit of mineral, in a classic style and with attractive complexity. Fresh, juicy and very refreshing in the mouth, not an ager but perhaps over the shorter terms this offers sweet red berry fruit and well balanced if modest structure. 87pts Read More

  • Château Cantemerle 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Limestone and grape seed aromas greet the nose which is nuanced and detailed. In the mouth this is a bit firm and chewy though with an innate sweetness to the grippy fruit. It feels a bit extracted on entry, then thins out a bit on the palate, but with attractive blackcurrant fruit and firm minerality, finishes with great refreshing tannin. 88pts Read More

  • La Lagune 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky, oaky, and deeply aromatic showing some smoldering herbal and faint black currant complexity. Open on entry, and while not terribly complex, this is fresh and bright with gently austere tannins. Showing a bit of nuance on the backend, then finishing with great freshness and purity of fruit, this is lovely. Not an imposing wine but seductiv... Read More

  • Maucaillou 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Olive, cedar, and a fairly heavy carriage of pencil lead oak on the nose which is tight complex and above pay grade with enough stuffing underneath to carry it well. Powerful on entry, and a bit extracted perhaps, showing notes of graphite, oak and fresh fruit in the mouth the mouth. A powerful yet elegant wine, a bit of a beast in fact though w... Read More

  • Chateau Saint-Paul 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The 2010 Saint-Paul is dark and deep with cedar bark, cherry cola and cassis on the nose. The mouth feel is dense, gritty and full of black fruit flavors such as blackberry coupled with cherry and coffee. This is a wine with power and structure for the price. Will age for 3-5 years but drinking well now. 89 points. Read More
