Haut-Médoc Wine

for this region?


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 Cantemerle Haut-Médoc 2006


    A little astringent yet but very. Doses of red berry fruits, blackberry and violets on the nose that follow to the palate well. Additional spice, earth and framing tannins balanced with good acidity leave leaves wanting more. Still has 3-5 years left. Drink or hold - 91 points - Paul Read More

  • Chateau de Braude Haut Medoc 2010


    Your holiday wine list is not complete without a French choice. French is subtle but not without complexity. This well-blanced, fruit forward Bordeaux blend will pair wonderfully with your turkey and sage dressing Christmas dinner. Read More

  • Château Doyac Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 2014


    even though it's young, there is a rather rich fruity bouquet of plums and berries; slightly savoury and did not disappoint Read More

  • Chateau Belgrave 2013


    The 2013 Chateau Belgrave (Cinquieme Cru of 1855) opens on the nose with some blueberry, smoky oak and a hint of more dark fruit such as blackberry. Entry is surprisingly light (and lean), bracing and acidic - without heady tannin but some blackberry fruit poking through. Depth and core is absent here, but a light tasty early drinker is found ...
