2007 d'Escurac, Medoc

SKU #1283577

This is a property to watch in the future. Very well-priced wines that have great balance and fruit. This one has toasty aromas and a very fruity palate impression. Super value. Very elegant wine from one of my favorite ready-to-drink vintages. Enjoy with a rack of lamb. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Wine Merchants)

The vineyards of Chateau d’Escurac, lying upon deep gravelly soils over clay and bedrock, are poised upon a crest that overlooks the expanse of the Médoc. A venerable site that dates back to the eleventh century stone chapel on the property, the wines are intrinsic to the fine terroir and should demand higher prices, but I won’t argue the fact. Deep crimson in color and livened by rich, expansive aromas and flavors of blackcurrant, toasty oak and sweet cherries, with additional spice, truffle and forest floor notes to enhance the complex persona. At ten years of age, this wine is a true pleasure, but can be enjoyed for several more. Fantastic value!

A ten year old wine for under 15 bucks is always a rare find but this would be a bargain at twice the price. This is dark, plush and sensual with good volume to the dusty cherry fruit, scents of cedar and hints of leather that fill the mid-palate. Faintly drying tannins carry the day and add much needed grip to the persistent finish. Here is a middle aged bargain in traditional Bordeaux.

This is a brilliant, mature claret which displays great elegance and finesse. It boasts a rich and seductive nose, followed by a round palate full of blackberry flavors with earthy and savory undertones. Excellent for drinking now and over next 5 years. Great accompaniment to lamb and wild game.

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.
