Château Haut-Breton Larigaudière Margaux 2018
- Textured, savoury
The wines of Margaux are often the most luscious and forward of Bordeaux, especially in their youth. Château Haut Breton Larigaudière has a perfect example of this in their Cru Bourgeois, composed mostly of cabernet sauvignon. It sees around 18 months in a mix of old and new French oak, adding a touch of vanilla behind the blueberry, cherry, plum and earthiness. It’s generous, concentrated and fresh, with chalky tannins and a long life ahead of it. Check out what the judges at Decanter had to say about it in their 97 point review below.
“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.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
