Chateau Bolaire Bordeaux Superieur 2011

Member Review by zufrieden:

A nice Damson Fruit (dark plum) greets the nose on this edition of the well-respected Chateau.The wine is slightly less opaque than 2009, but the palate still meets plenty of tannin and Petit Verdot notes (leather especially) but tempered with lots of black and red fruit such as cherry and blackberry. Some density is lacking despite the tannin structure, but good value. 88 points.

Château Bolaire, built in 1860, is located at the “end of the island" of Macau en Médoc. This land, nowadays connected to the peninsula “médulienne”, was in the past an island of the Garonne. Benefiting from conditions favourable with the vine growing (proximity of the river, natural drainage), this terroir has a distinctive wine history: 16th and the beginning of the 17th century represent the golden age of these vineyards. From this glorious period, the vineyard has evolved, but the tradition remains quite present: the grape variety Petit Verdot accounts for 39% of the planted grape varieties. Château Bolaire belongs to Vincent Mulliez today, also owner of Château Belle-Vue and Château de Gironville, in the Haut-Médoc appellation. Read less

A very slightly watery rim, but with a dark, inviting - almost black robe. Bouquet of plum-infused coffee with just a touch of alder smoke. Very new world and bold, a partial result, no doubt, of the large Petit Verdot contribution. Hitting above its weight and recommended. Drink now through 2011.

Another very good generic Bordeaux with committed ownership as well as a vision of quality, this blend of 40% Merlot, 35% Petit Verdot, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a sweet perfume of asphalt, blackberr...
