Ch. Loudenne Medoc 2011

Blended Red from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 28-Jun-2017
Very full, near impenetrable black-hued red colour, a little lighter on the rim with some garnet. The bouquet is elegantly concentrated with intense and well-packed aromas of black plums interwoven with blackcurrant notes along with subtle cassis, herb and blackcurrant leaf elements at the core. The nose is refined and unfolds a little funky earthy and gaminess with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate is finely proportioned with good depth and plenty of power, showing black plums and blackcurrants, along with cassis and dark herbs, revealing some earthy ant gamey funkiness. The mouthfeel is vibrant and fresh and follows a fine, firm line with fine-grained tannin extraction and balanced acidity. The wine carries to a sleek and slender finish. This is an elegantly concentrated Medoc red with black plum and blackberry fruit along with herb, earth and game nuances on a finely extracted palate. Match with roast lamb and beef dishes over the next 6+ years. Cru Bourgeois, from 51 ha of vines planted at 52% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 16 months in 33% new French oak. 17.5-/20 Jun 2017 RRP $40.00
