“The Chateau Lamothe de Haux Blanc 2011 is made in the traditional Bordeaux style with a blend of 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semmilon, and 20% Muscadelle. Even though the origins for this wine date back centuries, white Bordeaux went out of vogue for several years as red blends became more affordable to the every day wine drinker. However, in more recent years, white wines have come back stronger than ever and have reclaimed their place in the wine world.
I opened this wine on a Friday. I thought it was a bit too tannic (bitter) for me on the finish so I sealed it and stored it in the refrigerator. Saturday I opened something different because I just didn’t want the bitter taste of this wine again the following night. But then Sunday rolled around and I decided to give it another swirl (get it?!?!?). It is so much better after having time to breathe and mellow out. So glad I tried another glass!!! If you buy this one, I highly recommend decanting it – even if it is a white wine! Or you could open it a day ahead of time and store it in the fridge like I did. Either way, I am sure you will enjoy it!!!”
This wine review is great to discover Château Lamothe de Haux Blanc presented on Today’s Bordeaux. Located in the commune of Haux, on top of a clay-limestone slope in the heart of the Bordeaux wine country, this estate has been devoted to winegrowing from the very beginning, and has belonged to the same family for 4 generations (as of 1956).
