Review: 2012 Chateau Haut-Logat Haut-Medoc Cru Bourgeois

Share

 

What’s Cru Bourgeois? “A Cru Bourgeois du Médoc wine (a step below Cru Classe) is produced in one of eight prestigious appellations of Bordeaux (Médoc, Haut-Médoc, Listrac-Médoc, Moulis en Médoc, Margaux, Saint Julien, Pauillac, or Saint Estèphe) and has satisfied the strict quality selection procedure by which all applicant wines are reviewed annually.” This wine is a blend of merlot (45%), cabernet sauvignon (45%), and cabernet franc (10%).

A rustic wine, this one from Chateau Haut-Logat has a balsamic edge with notes of cherry, currant, and rhubarb. Lightly astringent as the palate develops, the finish is a bit harsh, though it’s filtered through notes of rosemary, thyme, and mint, which mask the bitter edge to some degree.
