Château Haut Nouchet: Tasting & Drinking

The backwaters of Pessac-Léognan provide a happy hunting ground for those who like to chase down the occasional Bordeaux bargain. The whites are fresh and lively, the reds classic, savoury and fresh, lifted by scents of tobacco and autumn leaves. The wines of Château Haut-Nouchet are no exception to this rule. The whites, always in plentiful supply, 7 hectares being a relatively large vineyard for the area, are supple but grippy, filled with plenty of bright Graves character, sometimes perfumed and feminine. I have tended to find the reds less striking overall, but they offer a fairly attractive character, with good fruit, bitter substance and fresh acidity. They potentially offer that enticing combination of quality, interest and, importantly, value. (8/12/16)
