UGC Bordeaux - 2008 Moulis/Haut-Médoc


DF and Mr. Jean-Luc Chapel, Brand Ambassador of Château La Lagune. We had a conversation about my love for his wine, particularly my partiality to the '86. He affirmed that Hong Kong was a major market for them, and La Lagune enjoys great name recognition there. Anyways, onto what I believe is some of the highest value wines in all of Bordeaux. Speaking about Poujeaux and Chasse-Spleen of course, two wines that are modestly priced yet are of exceptional quality. And they were wonderful, my two favourite wines of the tasting. Elegant and classic clarets, making me very happy I bought both.

Château Poujeaux - graphite minerality, linear structure, pure fruit, very classic and fine
Château Chasse-Spleen - Rich berries, creamy oak, ripe and very elegant, delicious
Château Citran -confected, flabby, no
Château La Lagune - oaky mocha aromas, very fine, spicy and quite forward
