Tasting 2007 Listrac, Moulis, and Haut-Médoc
Of the wines presented from this region, I was most interested in two wines, the stars of Moulis: Poujeaux and Chasse-Spleen. I've bought heavily into these wines the past few years, and I want to feel justified in spending my money here. Unfortunatly, La Lagune was not participating in the tasting. Too bad. I'd have liked to meet Caroline Frey. Overall, I was impressed with Poujeaux and Chasse-Spleen. Both showing good structure and potential. The rest...just not that interesting.
Château Fourcas Hosten - structured and dense, very dry, rustic nose, very good
Château Poujeaux - ripe berries, round fruit, touch of brettanomyces, high structure, needs some age
Château Chasse-Spleen - elegant, oak nose, beautiful dark fruits
Château Camensac - round, structured but accessible, finish drops off
Château Cantenac Brown - quite elegant, stiff tannins
