Started out quite dark and liquorice-dominated, becoming softer as it breathed a little. Blackberry, leather and some cough-medicine-like notes. A good wine, but not a great wine as it is a bit lacking in length.

Beautiful deep gold color. Palate on the nose is not too intensive, very fruity with flavors of pear, exotic fruits and a bit of herbal (grass) aroma. In mouth, the wine is quite round, silky and a little sweet, but dry. Strong fruitiness and tender sourness make it a delicate white wine with light body. Specially recommended for hot summer days.

Intense, fruity, structured, delicately wooded, this is an excellent wine that can be kept in cellar a few more years or be drunk now. For less than 10$, it is a great deal I order online on the website ( in French) www.chateaulamothe.com

This medium-bodied wine is bursting with flavors of cassis, spice box, tobacco and cedar. It finishes elegantly with slight hints of oak.

Rich, mouthfilling flavors of blackberry, bing cherry and spice box mingle nicely in a medium-bodied frame. This is the perfect introduction to red Bordeaux, at a price that allows you to enjoy it everyday. Will match well with peppered pork loin or your favorite beef dish.

This is the reserve bottling of the already excellent Château Lamothe. Produced from 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, the wine is further aged in new oak casks for 24 months. Stunningly smooth and supple, the wine is warm and generous, offering black plum, chocolate and roasted meat aromas and flavors. It tastes like a $40 St. Emilion - it's that good.

Here's a welcome relief from the mediocre vintages of the early 90s, an inexpensive Bordeaux wine with all of the concentration and complexity that put this region on the map. Deep plum and currant flavors shine with spice, cocoa, and vanilla accents. Smooth and accessible for a wine so young, this is a capable companion to roasts of beef, pork, and poultry.

With both a white and a red of value and quality, Château Lamothe de Haux, on the slopes of the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux, is now a modern winery inside the remains of a 16th century castle. Seek out the red wood aged Première Cuvée and the fresh unoaked white.
