Chateau Haut Grignon Medoc (2015)
67% cab 31% merlot
Médoc wines tend to be ruby in color, balanced and well-rounded on the palate with notes of cassis, cherries and earth, with firm tannins.
While most Bordeaux wines require aging, those labeled simply 'Médoc' tend to be lighter in style and more approachable in their youth.
Grown on gravel rich soils in the Left Bank of Bordeaux, wines from the Médoc are predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blends, but sometimes see the addition of Petit Verdot and Malbec.
