Estate Notes

Château Saransot-Dupré’s Merlot-based 2005 (unusual for a Left Bank wine) is a beautifully rounded red wine – packed with delicious black fruits, with spice and minerality adding interest. 

It is no wonder that it achieved the highest award (the coup de coeur) bestowed by the prestigious French wine guide, Le Guide Hachette des Vins, and was also awarded a gold medal at the Bordeaux Concours wine show.

The Listrac-Médoc is one of the Médoc’s six appellations. However, the fact that it has no great châteaux to its name and falls under the giant shadow of Margaux and Pauillac makes it a source of great value wines – especially in recent vintages.

Reviews

An excellent Listrac, exhibiting an opaque plum/purple color and plenty of minerality, blackcurrants and spice. This medium to full-bodied over-achiever is dense, rich, textured and very impressive.
