External Reviews for Chateau Bernadotte Haut-Medoc 37.5
Aromas of blackberries, licorice and toasted oak follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long finish. Very subtle. Best after 2008.
This is the finest offering yet produces under the administration of Madame de Lencquesaing (Pichon Lalande's owner). A succulent, concentrated, deep ruby/purple-colored wine, it exhibits considerable finesse as well as copious black currant fruit intermixed with spice box, chocolate, and cedar. Sweet tannin and good acidity provide delineation. It is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2012.
Medium ruby. Gamey aromas of smoke, mocha and tobacco; less primary than it appeared a year ago from barrel. Fairly broad and solidly built, but showing less pliancy and refinement than the 2001. Finishes with chewy, firm tannins that avoid harshness.
Bargain Bordeaux from a classic vintage, this Cabernet-dominated, balanced blend will cellar well with its deep, lush blackberry and cassis fruits and moderate tannins.
A plainsong of Médoc typicity, this approachable young Bordeaux is light and floral. The pepper and grape skin flavors end with a kick of acidity, ready to enjoy with red-wine sauced fish or veal.
Seriously good Cabernet, with raspberry and grape skin. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a smoky, tobacco finish. Well done.
The best effort yet made by the staff at Pichon-Lalande, this deep ruby/plum-colored wine shows notes of smoky oak intermixed with Provencal herbs, cedar wood, black currants, and earth. A rather fleshy, ripe, attractive wine to drink now and over the next 12 years, it is a blend of 41% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
