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.

  • La Bergerie de Senejac Haut-Medoc 1997


    This bottle of wine was part of a lot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/85406. Haut-Medoc is a large appellation set up in 1936 for wines produced in 15 communes on the eastern side of the Medoc peninsular stretching nearly 40 miles north of the City of Bordeaux. It is an 'umbrella' appellation because it includes severa... Read More

  • Chateau Bernadotte 2009


    This 2009 Bernadotte is very good indeed; it is perfectly representative of the upper Medoc with some fir shank (perhaps white spruce), cherry, and organic soil on the nose. The entry gives a medium density with distinctive cherry and cedar mid-palate. Nice warm, slightly chewy, medium finish. Worthy. 89 points. Read More

  • DVOGLER- as I mentioned in an earlier post, I was introduced to quality reds, ... ... ranging from a $18 Haut Medoc that ripens and gains depth in about 30 minutes, to some more expensive, Pomerol, Margaux, and ST Emlions.that benefit from 2- 4 hours of decanting and additional working in the glass. So there is no hard and fast rule but gener... Read More
