Tour Haut Caussan

„Auf Cru-Classé-Niveau.", notiert Ulrich Sautter euphorisch im FALSTAFF Magazin zu CHATEAU TOUR HAUT CAUSSAN 2014 und RENÉ GABRIEL schreibt allgemein über die Qualitäten des Weingutes: „… der einen Wein herstellt, der weit mehr wert ist, als dass man für ihn bezahlen muss.“ Die beiden Herren haben Recht, das belegt auch ein genauer Blick auf die FALSTAFF Bewertungen des Jahrgangs 2014. Mit 93 Punkten ist CHATEAU TOUR HAUT CAUSSAN 2014 damit gleich hoch bewertet wie berühmte Weingüter wie Pavie, Pavie Maquin, Figeac, Valandraud, Angelus, Pape Clement, Cos d’Estournel oder Les Forts de Latour - Weine die ein VIELFACHES von Tour Haut Caussan kosten!

17 Hektar stehen unter Reben (50% Cabernet Sauvignon und 50% Merlot), das Durchschnittsalter beträgt 30 Jahre.

- DECANTER "Best buys of the northern Medoc: Eight top estates", Stephen Brook (März 2020): "I was once served this wine over lunch at a classed growth, and I was sufficiently impressed to seek it out in subsequent vintages. I am rarely disappointed. It is owned by Philippe Courrian, who for many years has preferred to live in Corbières, where he has another wine estate. This property at Blaignan is run by siblings Fabien and Véronique. Even back in the 1970s, Philippe Courrian was a believer in low yields, and his children have maintained the standards he set.

The property’s 17ha are divided between two sectors: on the plateau of Potensac, and on clay-limestone soils near a windmill set on a point said (as are a few others) to be the highest spot in the northern Médoc. The vineyards are split between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with, since 2018, a dash of Petit Verdot. The average age of the vines is 50 years.

The harvest is manual. No new oak has been used since hail wiped out most of the crop in 2014, but gradually it will be re-introduced. There is no fining or filtration. This is an honest, concentrated and stylish Médoc, well balanced with no excesses, and it often shows surprising longevity."
