2010 Lamothe-Bergeron, Haut-Médoc

SKU #1123437 91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Dark in color, this is a concentrated wine that’s very firm in structure, with dense tannins. It’s powered by ripe, mature black fruits as well as acids that cut through the dry texture. This needs several years of aging. (RV)  (2/2013)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Focused, with a singed apple wood frame propelling the core of plum, cassis and black cherry fruit. The solid finish lets hints of charcoal and anise flitter in, displaying fine cut. (JM)  (3/2013)

Jancis Robinson

 Dense bright red. Round and fresh. More forward than most but vigorous. Eerily forward. But a nice package. Minerally.  (2/2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 An excellent cru bourgeois made from two grapes, 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, this under-$20 wine is a classic. Medium to full-bodied with notes of cedar wood, unsmoked cigar tobacco, and red and black currants, this wine has rich fruit, sweet tannins and an attractive finish. Drink it over the next 5-8 years. (RP)  (2/2013)

Rocky minerality upfront on the nose, followed by notes of thyme, and slight oak. Dark cherry, plum, and cassis round out the bouquet. Elevated acidity on the palate; dark cherry, cassis, plum present once more. Fruit quality is leaning towards stewed and dried, less ripe. The fruit has held up over time. A fantastic pairing with red meat, especially lamb or chuck roast!

4 years of bottle age have really mellowed this once big and hearty wine which is produced under the direction of Chateau Angelus. This is toasty with an array of black fruits and a smooth and mellow middle for easy drinking. This slightly modern but delicious wine will sell out quickly.

With a fabled chateau dating back to the Hundred Years’ War, this property has plenty of historical significance, and time is on your side if you can conceivably lay down a case or two of this finely etched Haut-Médoc for a few more years, as all the rich structural elements are background players to the more fruit-driven assemblage of black plum, cherry, tobacco-scented and mineral notes currently on display. Serve with an aged porterhouse and you will be making memories of your own.

From Cussac Fort-Medoc, just south of Saint Julien. This is a big full-bodied red wine that is very much a product of the 2010 vintage, with more of, well, everything. Loads of rich, dark fruit, sweet and ripe combine with lively acidity and firm tannins. A touch floral on the nose buttressed by hints of oak spice and vanilla. Modern and forward in style. Decant for best results.

1/2* Hubert de Boüard is consulting at this winery, and it sure shows. It's much more modern in style than previous vintages, with tons of black fruit aromas and great structure. Semi-new wave. We have sold over 800 bottles of this gem. Despite its vintage, the wine is ready to enjoy with a nice rack of lamb.
Drink from 2017 to 2020

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
