External Reviews for Château Lamothe de Haux Premiere Cuvée Vieille En Fûts de Chêne
This medium-bodied wine is bursting with flavors of cassis, spice box, tobacco and cedar. It finishes elegantly with slight hints of oak.
With both a white and a red of value and quality, Chacirc;teau Lamothe de Haux, on the slopes of the Premiegrave;res Cocirc;tes de Bordeaux, is now a modern winery inside the remains of a 16th century castle. Seek out the red wood aged Premiegrave;re Cuveacute;e and the fresh unoaked white.
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.
Herersquo;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.
This is the reserve bottling of the already excellent Chacirc;teau 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 mdash; itrsquo;s that good.
