Château Lieujean 2015 - Cru Bourgeois, Haut-Médoc

Number of wine boxes of 3 bottles to add to basket:

The opinion of the sommelier

This month, I wanted to take advantage of the fabulous 2015 vintage in Bordeaux : I did that with the famous Château Lieujean, a safe bet of the Médoc vineyards, which is acclaimed by the greatest specialists. What differentiates this Cru Bourgeois is certainly its concentrated expression of black fruits accompanied by a subtle woody flavours. The tannins melt, the wine is supple, juicy and the finish is persistent and deep. 

 

Terroir

Located in Saint-Sauveur near Pauillac, the Château is close to the Garonne and enjoys a temperate microclimate. The Haut-Médoc’s main characteristic is its very special soils made of hard stones that lower the yields of the vines, which gives birth to ripe grapes full of quality and with concentration. It is not far from there that Chateau Lafite, Mouton Rotshchild and Latour are located.

lecepage Grape variety

An emblematic blend of Médoc, where Cabernet Sauvignon is predominant, associated with Merlot in smaller quantities. The Cabernet Sauvignon rather enjoys the gravelly soils of the left bank and brings an elegant tannic structure and an intense power in the mouth whereas the merlot favors the clay soils of the right bank giving balances to the wine by its suppleness and roundness.

lemillesime Vintage

The vintage 2015 is one of the greatest vintage in Bordeaux ! The berries have benefited from almost perfect ripening conditions along with an ideal weather throughout the year. Specialists agree that the quality has almost reached the one of the excellent 2005 vintage ! Power and elegance are the key words for the year 2015. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Château Lieujean was founded in the 19th century. Each year for each vintage, Château features in the Cru Bourgeois’ classification which distinguishes the best Médoc wines. Every year, since 2010, the highly anticipated selection of Crus Bourgeois is unveiled to the general public and honours the best wines of the region.
