52% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot with 14 months in oak 30% new.
The 2014 is a charming vintage, borne up by wonderful freshness with blackcurrant and red fruit notes and a hugely ample richness. The finish is elegant and consistent with what this estate is all about.
"The Château Lamothe Bergeron 2014 has a crisp, pencil lead bouquet, not intense but clean and focused, with well integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe blackberry and cassis fruit, fine acidity and an elegant finish that already feels quite seductive, but maintains typicity of what you would expect from an Haut-Médoc. Good potential." Neal Martin 89-91
