2015 Médoc Cru Bourgeois (Escot, Chateau)

Chateau Escot, Médoc Cru Bourgeois, Bordeaux, France 2015

{sustainable} 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot


The northern reaches of Cabernet-centric Left Bank Bordeaux stretch out above Saint-Estephe and the rest of the Haut-Médoc’s higher ground. It was formerly (and unflatteringly) known as the “Bas Médoc” or low Médoc – a description that referred, it seemed, not only to its sea level relationship but to the overarching quality of the wines produced. Not fair! This outing from Chateau Escot is timeless, benefitting from contemporary ripeness and modern finesse but remaining at a conservative 13%, which is becoming something of a rarity. Classic!

Serving Suggestion: Beef Wellington w/ shiitake & shallot-centric duxelles. Mashed potato & mushroom-stuffed bell peppers from the grill.
