A very decent Cru Bourgoise, this went a treat with a medium-rare grass-fed beef tenderloin. The nose was very ripe and sunny, but still clearly Bordelais, with warm scents of blackberries, cassis and plums wed to slightly meaty, earthy undertone. Some spicy oaky hints and a little floral accent completed the picture. Quite a nice bouquet. The palate was still coated with a patina of tannins, but this were very ripe and supple, forming a nice base for plush, ripe flavours of cassis and blackberries seasoned by a nice spiciness.
Listrac-Médoc is a red wine appellation of the Haut-Médoc district of Bordeaux. It takes its name from the parish of Listrac-Médoc, where grapes using the title must be grown. Vines that enter into the composition of the Cru Bourgeois Castle Hermitage cover 10 hectares in the heart of Listrac-Médoc, on clay-limestone and gravelly soil. They have more than 40 years and is divided between a half Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot.
