Meaty, rich and over extracted red - there was some nice fruit (plums and bramble fruits with blackberries dominating), and a subtle leather character. However, the fruit was over extracted and the dominant flavor on the finish was licorice. I believe the bottle was slightly corked, so have not scored the wine.

A wonderfully crafted Grand Vin de Bordeaux from Graves, blending equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and aged 14 months in French oak barrels, the Chacirc;teau Haut Selve embodies stunning value. Made in a balanced yet fruit forward style with well integrated tannins, it will be a perfect companion to your best grilling efforts. Served at cellar temperature, this wine is certain to be a cool pick for a hot summer.

A rich wine that shows plenty of berry fruits, supported by some dry but dusty tannins. This is a wine that is going to develop with its firm powerhouse of ripe fruit that is emerging from a tight period in its development.

This Bordeaux blend is 50% Cabernet and 50% Merlot, and was aged in oak barrels for 12 months. This is a full-bodied wine with a nice balance of tannins and fruit. The wine shows dark berries and a hint of herbal characteristics on the palate. Great to serve with grilled marinated flank steak or blue cheese burgers.


Winemaker's Notes:

Release Notes: A 50:50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grown on gravel soil with a chalky sub-soil. The grapes were hand-picked and vinified with great care before ageing for 12 months in oak barrels, 30% of them new wood, in the Chateau's beautiful chais. A gold medalist at the Concours General Agricole de Paris
