Chateau Maison Blanche Medoc 2011
|Brand||Chateau Maison Blanche|
Wine SpectatorOffers a smoky feel, with ample charcoal notes, layered with fleshy plum and steeped black currant fruit. The finish gives way to a cedary component in the end. Drink now through 2015. 7,800 cases made.
Wine AdvocateOne of the more successful Cru Bourgeois of the Medoc, this 2011 possesses a dark ruby color, attractive notes of berry fruit, earth and spice, good balance, ripe tannin and no herbaceousness. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
Wine EnthusiastThis is dark and firm with a tough, austere character. It has weight, but the bitterness of too-much extraction gives a hard edge. The juiciness at the end doesn't compensate.
