Most french wine labels are pretty simple. They usually show a Chateau or some other figure like a horse and just provide the basic information of what region is it from. I have noticed lately that a lot of french winemakers are putting out wines that that meant for early consumption with more modern eye catching labels.
The 2011 Mademoiselle L Haut-Medoc from Bordeaux is one of those. With the uncapitalized title going vertically and what almost looks like a potted plant that are actually holes in the label, this one is not traditional. This one is from Underground Cellar and was bundled with a few other french Bordeaux.
It is 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. Their website only gives a brief description of the wine and the other searches on Google have very poorly translated tasting notes. Here is the best one I can find but I am not sure if they really mean to say it tastes like peaches:
Nose:delicate floral and fruity nose, hint of vanilla
Taste:Opens with flavors of fresh red fruits with peach notes backed by a subtle woody and sweet tannins and creamy, the final of a pretty long, is fresh and delicious.
Drink from:From now
Open:1 / 2H before serving
Serve:Serve between 16 ° C and 18 ° C
So how was it?
Color – Deep ruby red.
Nose – Cranberries, herbs, and a hint of green pepper.
Taste – Cranberry with some earth, maybe cedar and toast.
Finish – Medium with medium in acid and in tannins.
Overall, this is a smooth but lighter in flavor than most. It isn’t too complex and is a very good drink now wine. I would recommend this on it’s own as the flavors are more subtle and the body is medium. With saying that it is still a good wine.
