''A great buy, this is a dark, intense blend with attractive tobacco and bottle-age characters mingling with lovely cassis and black fruit flavours.'' John Saker
Now here's an aged Bordeaux you can get excited about! It's the 9 year old Château Loudenne Médoc Cru Bourgeois 2012. Bordeaux needs age to show its best, this has age and the wine scribes are suggesting this is now ready to impress!
"A great buy, this is a dark, intense blend" John Saker's Top 5 Bordeaux Reds (New Zealand)
"Generous yet structured red that will impress at the dinner table" Paul Tudor, Master of Wine
Don't delay your purchase on this one, it's already 9 years old, it's drinking close to its peak and it's priced the same as it was 3 years ago, before the Aussie dollar crashed making imports a lot more expensive. What we're saying is, you'll need to spend a lot more to buy something similar that was recently imported into Australia. Check out further reviews here:
"A blend of cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, and merlot from a reliable producer. Dense, weighty red with dark berry, fresh herb and chocolate/mocha flavours. A good cellaring prospect" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review
"This blend features notes of cedar, spice and currant aromatics, plus firm tannins in the mouth and fresh acidity. It is a generous yet structured red that will impress at the dinner table. It’s ready now." Paul Tudor, Master of Wine.
"A great buy, this is a dark, intense blend with attractive tobacco and bottle-age characters mingling with lovely cassis and black fruit flavours. The tannins are robust." John Saker's Top 5 Bordeaux Reds
''As always, a very good vintage predominantly Merlot and therefore more supple, open and fruit-driven.'' Nadia Fournier, Wine Align (USA)
''With vineyards close to the Gironde, this is a well-situated château. This 2012 is one of the best for several years, giving ripe tannins, balanced wood and good black currant acidity.'' Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
