Chateau Micalet 2015 Haut Medoc
Standing further back from the estuary of the Gironde, wines of the Haut Medoc rarely have the ripeness of the more famous wines of Pauillac, Margaux etc. but there is real value to be found here. Micalet is a defiantly old school producer, making wines based on a majority of cabernet, with merlot and a good dollop of petit verdot. These are peppery, brooding, structured wines with character that demand food and reward ageing.
