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.

  • Lanessan Haut-Médoc Premier 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Here is yet another highly rated 2010 Red Bordeaux that does not deliver. Cedar and leather nose with some plum. Lighter body style, soft tannin, austere but with a medicinal note that is not enjoyable. After tasting many 2009 and 2010 Bordeaux, I cannot agree with the famous wine writers about the quality of these vintages. Seems like corruptio... Read More

  • The design color and motif are more Burgundy-ish or CNdP-ish or perhaps Madiran or even elsewhere, not Bordeaux--as imagined by a designer who doesn't know the wine world well. Obviously the show, which has won Emmies, has great production values and even good scripts, doesn't do a lot of product placement.'___ des Boothes' in a parody of gothic... Read More

  • Yeah, the gothic type isn't used in Bordeaux much if at all, more in Burg ... first growths don't say Haut Medoc on the label, but that's because they are all entitled to use a smaller appellation designation (mostly Paulliac, but Margaux and Haut Brion are exceptions, and Haut Brion is not in the Haut Medoc).  Margaux could be confusing becau...

  • Some Bordeauxish options:La Parde de Haut-Bailly is about $20 in France, less in Switzerland (!), more in the States. 2nd wine of the Chateau, which has improved quite a bit in recent years.Chateux Teyssier (St. Emilion), Olivier (Pessac-Leognan) and Potensac (Medoc) can still be found under $30, if not $20 anymore. Oliver's white is also excell... Read More
