Margaux, Château Haut Breton Larigaudière 2011

£162.00

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot.

Château Haut Breton Larigaudière is a beautiful Medoc style domain, surrounded by parkland in Soussons, Margaux and was first awarded Cru Bourgeois Superière status in 1886. Acquired and renovated by the Belgian De Schepper-De Mour family in 1964 it now produces classic soft, silky and very “feminine” Margaux at a very drinkable price.
With meticulous hard work, both in the vineyard and in the cellar and then the Bordeaux skill of “assemblage”; the final blend is greater than the sum of its parts. This after 18 to 24 months of constant tasting of each oak barrel until the personality of each is known and the final blend enters the bottle.
This wine is now just entering it’s seductive phase with red berry aromas, powerful yet smooth tannins, juicy fruits of the forest and spicey notes on the finish. With maturity new dimensions  and complexity will come along to intrigue and please both the mind and the mouth! If you enjoy classic Claret then Margaux should always be in your cellar.
