Chateau De Raux

chateau de raux haut-medoc 2014 750ml



Chateau du Raux produces a wine typical of the Medoc-deep in color, full bodied and seamlessly structured with room to develop if cellared. The nose offers pleasing spices which lead to a smooth and clean yet elegant palate.

The name "Raux" stems from the ancient Oc language (the old dialect of the region) and means "stream," a nod to its positioning near the Gironde Estuary. The 2014 growing season was marked by a promising spring followed by a fine, fast and even flowering in early June that suggested an early harvest. The summer, however, was a big disappointment with July being wet and cool, and August too cool to remedy July. "Aout faitle mout" (August makes the must) is a common wine expression, summing up the need for sunshine, heat and hydric stress which forces the vine to concentrate the sugars in the fruit. Bordeaux had a significant deficit of sunshine and heat in August 2014. The advanced vegetative cycle caused by May and June's warmth had been cancelled out, and winemakers were getting very nervous of a repeat of the poor 2013 harvest the year before. Then came "the miracle" of September and October, which were the warmest, sunniest and driest Bordeaux has ever seen.
