Profile

Smell

This vintage showcases blue and black fruit, with plenty of black plum, blueberry, cassis, and blackberry. There are classic Bordeaux aromatics of cedar from oak ageing, along with hints of vanilla and sweet pipe tobacco.

Taste

Balanced and open on the palate, this full-bodied red showcases flavours of black cherry, raspberry, and stewed plums. Fine-grained, dusty tannins and vibrant acidity provide structure and ageability, and the finish resolves with hints of stony minerality, baking spice, and smoke.

Pairing

Embrace rustic fall flavours and pair this classic Bordeaux with a mushroom and onion tart or a slow-roasted pork tenderloin, or serve with a classic roast beef dinner.

Aromas and Flavours

Plum

Sweet, fruity and sensual, similar stone fruit aromas to a peach, but without the 'fuzziness.'

Blueberry

Eating handfuls of berries straight from the bush, your fingers stained purple for days to come.

Tobacco

The smell of a freshly rolled cigar, slightly sweet, and earthy - just like Grandpa's hugs.

Cedar / Oak

An intriguing mix of clove, sandalwood and resin - the smell of your favourite wooded trail.

Vanilla

A sweet spice aroma that indicates oak-ageing - think vanilla bean frappuccino!

Description

We're nothing if not loyal at WineCollective, and when we find a winery that cranks out vintage after vintage of stunning wine, we stick with it! 2019 is the fifth straight vintage of Château Haut-Vigneau we've shared, and it's a wonderful example of classic Bordeaux elegance and finesse.

Close to the Gironde, the property where this winery is situated was purchased in 1636 by a knight and adviser to the king. This seriously elegant chateau is surrounded by 2.5 hectares of vines, which are in Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux. Officially designated as an AOC in 1936, the history of this area dates back to the Roman Empire. The region is quite hilly, giving the vines planted here great sun exposure, while being just 70 metres above sea level.

This flagship blend is predominantly composed of Merlot (85%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%), with a dollop Cabernet Franc (5%). The vineyards are maintained using organic and sustainable viticulture practices, and the yields are highly managed to ensure only top quality wine is produced. This wine is drinking beautifully now, but will evolve in the cellar for at least another 5-7 years. Boost the aromas and flavours by decanting for at least 30 minutes prior to serving at 18 C.
