Chateau Noaillac, Cru Bourgeois - Half 2018
55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot
Chateau Noaillac is now producing succulent, lovely early drinking claret. Peppery red fruit nose tinged with a hint of liquorice followed by faintly toasted cedar, earth and spice. The palate is still on the lighter side with generous ripe blackcurrant and mulberry flavours over toasty cedar, earth and spice nuances. Dryish finish with a sturdy tannin structure providing some grip. Aftertaste of blackcurrant, subtle liquorice, toasty cedar, earth and spice. A top example of entry level Bordeaux that delivers fantastic value.
Les Pags, Marc, Xavier, Damien, or the richness of an enlightened mind in a glass of Noaillax. Quality is developed from the beginning of the vegetative cycle of the vine, at pruning when limiting the load of grapes is essential; quantity is then set aside in favor of quality. After fermentation and blending, the barreling is done following a rigorous selection of different French oak coopers to allow the wines to mature in optimal conditions.
A rising star. Damien, Marc Pages’s grandson, took over the running of this property some years ago.Some 40 years ago, they realised that the soil in this northerly part of the Medoc once produced excellent wines and the land had been abandoned. Now with 46 hectares, and the vines becoming older, 20-25 years on average, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 55% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, a new chai with rows of temperature controlled stainless steel vats and an immaculate barrel cellar. Chateau Noaillac is now producing succulent, lovely early drinking claret.
