Haut-Medoc

Haut-Medoc is an appellation set up in 1936 [although there has been viticulture here for centuries] for red wines from 15 communes on the eastern side of the Medoc peninsular stretching nearly 40 miles north of the City of Bordeaux. Vine cultivation here really got going in the 17th century when Dutch engineers drained the salt marshes The appellation 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 Senejac 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The 2010 Senejac has matured nicely since it last passed my lips, and tastes like a 5th Growth rather than its Cru Bourgeois provenance in Haut-Medoc (there is only one classified growth in this region). Anyway, this wine has some tannic punch to last another 3-5 years, but seems mature now; lots of blackberry (Cabernet influence), grainy cherr... Read More

  • Château Lanessan 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Translucent dark ruby in the glass. Dark fruit and a touch of leather on the nose. First sip gives some dark fruit then red fruit and tart acidity. A bit flat mid palate with only some slight drying on the finish. I carried this over to my supper and the fruit really popped with Greek salad. This is clearly a food wine and a bit young at that.

  • Chateau Saint Ahon Haut-Medoc 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Rebuilt during the Napoleonic order, this property (Haut-Medoc) is a bit of a surprise; (try finding the name of this saint in any listing, par example), there are gobs of blackberry, cherry and a hint of vanilla on the palate, and the nose is of cherry-dipped cigar. Much better than expected, with a soft, metallic finish. 90. Read More
