This will bring you back to the pleasures and affordability of drinking well-made, classic claret. From a really beautiful vintage in Bordeaux whose hallmarks are freshness and balance. This overachieving red delivers the vintage character with its good concentration of fresh red fruits, soft tannins, and good balance of fruit, acidity, and alcohol (13.5%). A blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc. The high percentage of Cabernets is made possible by the clayey gravelly, limestone soils of the estate's vineyards. This results in a fuller wine, with good structure. Lamothe de Haux dates back to 16th century and has been owned by the same family for over the past half century. The winery's deep underground cellar is a rare feature in Bordeaux, that allows the wine to be aged in barrel for up 18 months in perfect temperature and humidity, in the absence of light, and in silence.
