2018 CHATEAU HAUT BRETON LARIGAUDIÈRE MARGAUX

$55.00 $55.00

One of the top 5 wines from the 2020 Decanter World Wine Awards Top 20 Best of Bordeaux list, Haut Breton Larigaudiere exudes the confidence and balance that you’d expect from a 97 point Margaux. Meticulously farmed, the Estate consists of 20 micro-plots ranging from deep gravel, sand to clay and limestone subsoils. Their Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend embodies the area’s hallmark elegance and captivating palate presence, and at $55, the value is significant.

The vineyard’s geological characteristics, including low-lying topography and well-drained soils, aid in their Cabernet vines reaching full physiological ripeness at low sugar levels, resulting in lower alcohol and brilliantly balanced wines.

The wine is fermented plot-by-plot, in varying vat sizes, on the skins for 15-30 days, which extracts color and richness. After 15-20 months in barrel, the resulting wine is powerfully complex and irresistible right out of the bottle.

Description

2018 CHATEAU HAUT BRETON LARIGAUDIÈRE MARGAUX

A gorgeous wine, with deliciously ripe fruits including black cherry, blue plums and spice. There’s a huge amount here, in what is a brooding, deep, broad and earthy wine. A Margaux for the hedonists and sensualists.” 

97 Points, Platinum 

Winery Notes: “The elegant, classy Cru Bourgeois at Château Haut Breton Larigaudière is the result of rare expertise and an outstanding terroir, where the 85% Cabernet Sauvignon is unusual in Margaux, and expresses its superb aromatic finesse. Combining such elegance with a wonderfully full-bodied, powerfully tannic structure, Château Haut Breton Larigaudière proudly vies with the greatest wines in the appellation. This Margaux is attractive from the outset thanks to its brilliant, intense ruby-red colour and elegant red fruit and vanilla bouquet. It is full bodied, rich, and wonderfully fresh on the palate.”
“Denser than Le Créateur from the same address but well balanced and pretty racy. Sucky-stony finish that is admirably persistent. Really rather exciting wine.”
