Winemaker Notes

Dark, brilliant ruby-red color. Intense bouquet of morello cherry and blackberry, with subtle oak providing overtones of vanilla, spice, and toast. The palate reflects the aromatics on the nose. It is also full-bodied and powerful with tightly-knit, but velvety tannin. this confirms that 2009 Maison Blanche is indeed magnificent. Despite the abundant sunshine, the wine has retained a great deal of freshness and has a good long aftertaste and balance unequalled since 2004. While the wine is entirely dry, there is a lovely sensation of fruit and sweetness.

Wine Spectator
Vibrant, with nicely packed raspberry, fig and blackberry fruit carried by mouthwatering acidity and well-embedded structure. Lots of anise, spice and tar frames the finish.

Chateau Maison Blanche, France
Chateau Maison Blanche was already acknowledged as one of the finest crus bourgeois in the 19th century in the famous Cocks and Feret, the "Bordeaux Bible". Patrick Bouey acquired Chateau Maison Blanche at the same time as Chateau Lestruelle, in 1998. He was aware of the great potential of this terroir in the Northern Medoc and undertook a spectacular renovation of the estate. Furthermore, all vineyard operations - training, prunin, etc. - were updated in the interest of quality and respect for the environment. New temperature-controlled vats were also introduced to the Chateau.

One of the most—if not the most—famous red wine regions of the world, the Medoc reaches from the city of Bordeaux northwest along the left bank of the Gironde River almost all the way to the Atlantic. Its vineyards climb along a band of flatlands, sandwiched between the coastal river marshes and the pine forests in the west. The entire region can only claim to be three to eight miles wide (at its widest), but it is about 50 miles long.

While the Medoc encompasses the Haut Medoc, and thus most of the classed-growth villages (Margaux, Moulis, Listrac, St-Julien, Pauillac and St. Estephe) it is really only those wines produced in the Bas-Medoc that use the Medoc appellation name. The ones farther down the river, and on marginally higher ground, are eligible to claim the Haut Medoc appellation, or their village or cru status.

While the region can’t boast a particularly dramatic landscape, impressive chateaux disperse themselves among the magically well-drained gravel soils that define the area. This optimal soil draining capacity is completely necessary and ideal in the Medoc's damp, maritime climate. These gravels also serve well to store heat in cooler years.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
