With an 11th century chapel on its property, Chateau d’Escurac has been a notable producer in Civrac en Medoc since its wines were first mentioned as “amongst the Medoc fifth growths” in 1839. Passing through a variety of owners until it reached the Landureau family in 1934, the property is currently owned and attended to by Jean-Marc, the grandson of the original Landureau, who also owns Chateau Haut Myles, a second estate that resides down the road.

This wine is so attractive right now it may be hard to keep a few bottles for the cellar! Deep, clear beautiful color. Aromas of chocolate, bing cherries, currants, blackberries all carry over to the mouth where all this decadent fruit and chocolate is balanced by fine acidity and velvety smooth tannins. The finish lingers long with just a hint of spice from the cabernet franc.

 

Château Marjosse is a small Bordeaux property that is fast gaining a reputation as one of the region’s bets value wines. It was bought in 1997 by the régisseur of Château Cheval Blanc, Pierre Lurton, a prominent member of the Bordeaux wine dynasty of the same name. In just 3 years he has earned the wines of Marjosse considerable, and much deserved, recognition.

This “Sleeper of the Vintage” is classic styled Bordeaux at a price you can afford everyday. The bouquet is a mélange of red and black fruits with a hint of coffee bean. In the mouth there is good expression of all that you love about Bordeaux…tobacco, cassis, cedar, plum all wrapped together with poise and balance. Nice long finish that is savory and complex.

 

The Génissac terroir, which makes up most of the land of our Bordeaux wine Chateau de la Cour d’Argent, consists of a fine hillock of chalky clay which has much in common with St Emilion on the other side of the Dordogne.

This wine has been on my radar for a long time. Always over-delivering on quality vs price ratio. Deep, lustrous color gives way to the aromas of crushed red and black fruits and hints of Herbs de Provence. Very well integrated acidity and tannin. Polished and very attractive from this humble appellation.
