Arguably the most renowned wines on earth, the classed growths of Bordeaux continue to epitomize the power and complexity Bordeaux blends are capable of. While most wines here are based on Cabernet Sauvignon, both Merlot and Cabernet Franc play important roles in adding layered complexity to the finished wines, and allow winemakers in each commune within the region to use the blend that is best suited to their unique combination of soil and meso-climate. The most famous communes each have their own classic traits with St. Estephe giving full, if rustic wines, from the heavy clay soils, to Paulliac's elegant balance of ripe fruits, minerality and structure to St. Julien's rich blackberry core and supple feel. Moving to the South of the region brings one to Margaux, with its notes of flowers and berries draped over a feminine frame, and then to the Graves region with wines redolent of tobacco, gravel and smoke. To the East lies the famous appellations of St. Emillion, with its wonderfully ripe Cabernet Franc, and Pomerol where Merlot rules the roost and produces deep, plush wines of uncommon refinement.

Bordeaux Haut Benauge
Mis en Bouteille au Chateau

This beautifully crafted Bordeaux offers strawberry, plum, and oak with a hint of cocoa and butter in the nose. Its subtle, complex, and balanced fruit lead to a mellow long silky finish that lasts forever. Paired wonderfully with the rich chocolate chip chocolate brownies.

Chateau Graville-Lacoste Blanc
Chateau Graville-Lacoste Blanc 2008
Sauvignon Blanc - France - Bordeaux
When you put your nose to a glass of the Chateau Graville-Lacoste Graves aromas of peaches, grass, minerals and citrus leap out. In the mouth, the wine is medium-bodied and well-balanced with clean, fresh fruit flavors. The finish has good length with bright acidity.

Blend - France - Bordeaux
Lussac - Saint-Emilion
July 2009: The nose is of dusty rose petals, bright cherry, and a touch of oak. On the palate the bring cherry carries though with a little vanilla, but the finish is quite short.

Smell of shit -- then first taste -- like shit.
However, after it opened up for 15-30 minutes, it changed to a more musty aroma. Very little fruit, more mineral as it opened. Match with fresh pairs would be very nice.

Chateau Preuillac
Medoc Cru Bourgeois 2003
Blend - France - Bordeaux
Medoc Cru Bourgeois
Maceration for 3 days in cold conditions before fermenting. Alcoholic fermentation in 190-hectolitre temperature-controlled wooden vats. Maceration in warm conditions after fermenting, over a period of up to 2 weeks. Malolactic fermentation in wooden vats. Maturing: 75% in barrels for 12 months with racking every 3 months.
Colour: A lovely, dark ruby-red colour with a hint of purple around the rim;
Bouquet: The bouquet is still discrete, clean and clear, revealing slight hints of spice (cloves), fresh mushrooms and chocolate;
Palate: The wine is fleshy with a lovely, warm personality backed up by nice full tannins, velvety and flavoursome, set off nicely by a fresh, lively sensation, both rich and charming;
Conclusion: An opulent, most attractive Château Preuillac Cru Bourgeois, the perfect example of a successful wine in a vintage in which the sun caused great difficulties.
