Château Lamothe Bergeron Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 2003
In the cellars, the first vats gave very fine results: Merlot grapes produced fine tannins, silky and ripe, as well as harmonious colors, good alcoholic levels and fruity aromas. Cabernet grapes benefited from very favorable weather conditions during September to slowly reach their full maturity and offer aromatic finesse, high alcohol levels and beautiful colors.
Chateau Lamothe-Bergeron owes part of its name and its reputation to the prestige of the agronomist Jacques de Bergeon.
This is a Cru Burgeois of the Haut-Medoc region. Great opening of dark red fruits followed by woody aromas, with some pepper and cinamonn, and notably, for a bourdeaux, a light chocolate tinge. Great wine for price/value, relation, but better to serve with a food. I personallly served it with lamb in mole from oaxaca and did amazingly.
