9 Euro. Could you get a Bordeaux for 9 Euro? That you actually could drink?
I had read good things about this one so I ordered a couple of bottles.
2015 Château Haut-Landon
The cepage is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, but my first impressions of the nose is that of Cabernet Franc - lots of varm grass, some bell pepper and warm tiles. With air scents of red currants, dried plums and fir wood arises from the glass. A bit on the light side but there is a fine balance here.
The taste is medium bodied with a fine structure and notes of red currants, tiles, dry tobacco and some grassy notes. A fine acidity and rounded tannins. A very fine mouth feel. A tad short maybe. True to its origin and a very nice "luncheon claret" to quote Michael Broadbent.
