For great value, classic drinking, it's difficult to beat the Cru Bourgeois wines of the Médoc. 2015 was an EPIC vintage for the region. One of my personal favourites!

"The blueberry and orange-peel aromas are all here. Medium body, fresh acidity and an attractive aftertaste. A little lean, but should soften by 2021. A blend of 60 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and 40 per cent Merlot."
91 Pts - James Suckling

“2015s are wonderfully sensual, exotic wines that should drink well relatively early and also reward aging”
Vinous - Antonio Galloni

This vintage is of a beautiful presence, both in its rather sustained red colour, as in its aromatic expression of red fruits with cassis and blackberry and undergrowth with nuances of caramel and spices.

On the palate, we find very ripe fruit with a nice freshness, the palate is charming;  Hint of oak and hints of sweet spices. Round and warm, it benefits from good wood support and ends with a long and suave finish. Balanced, CHÂTEAU LOIRAC has a marked personality. After a few years of aging, the tannins melt.

CHÂTEAU LOIRAC is a wine estate in the Médoc, a registered designation of origin, in the commune of Jau Dignac and Loirac. The first parcels of vines were planted in 1987 and the vineyard is located on two gravelly hills (sandy gravel and thin soils), 6 km west of the Estuary, and 15 km from the Atlantic Ocean. The seahorse on its crest is a reminder of the waters' proximity.


The proximity of the Gironde and the sea provides a unique climatic clemency: the incidence of tides, combined with windy periods and the action of the sun, favour the establishment of the vineyard. 15 hectares are planted in production, to which are added 2 hectares in planting, for a total area of 23 hectares.


The elaboration of the wines of CHÂTEAU LOIRAC stems from parsimonious choices: low vigour rootstocks, strict pruning "in double Guyot", search for harmony between the grape varieties. With a grape variety composed of 35% Merlot Noir, 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot, the vineyard produces each year about 80,000 bottles
