1975 Château Lachesnaye Cru Bourgeois Supérieur Haut-Médoc
Score Vintage 1975 Bordeaux Red: 17/20
About the domain
This vineyard dates from the 17th century and is planted on soil rich in Garonne gravel.
About the cuvée
It produces supple, rounded, elegant wines.
The Haut-Médoc AOC is located south of the Médoc appellation. The Haut-Médoc appellation produces only red wines (220,000 hl / year) out of 4,800 ha including 6 renowned municipal appellations: Margaux, Moulis, Listrac, Saint-Julien, Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe.
On gravel and clay-limestone soils, the dominant varietal is Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Merlot, with a smaller proportion of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.
These are wines with high aging potential. Young, the wines of Haut-Médoc have a strong tannic side: some wines can not be tasted for several years. They then offer a supple and fleshy development and give wines with complex aromatic bouquets of red fruits. An aging in oak barrels brings aromas of roasting and leather.
Vintage description 1975 Bordeaux
An extraordinary vintage for Bordeaux. Despite some violent storms during August and September, the harvest was very good with perfectly ripe grapes. Rich, strong and extremely tannic, these wines have a good cellaring capacity. Today, there are huge differences in quality between the crus, some are austere and closed, while others are rich and deep.
