Description

Chateau du Juge Cadillac

The Medeville family runs this exceptional Domaine in the Cadillac region of Bordeaux. Olivier Medeville is an experienced winemaker with an international pedigree. His aim is to make modern, fruit-driven wines that represent excellent value for money.

The southwest facing slopes of the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux furnish the complex soil-structure and the climatic conditions that are necessary prerequisites to the production of great wine. The Château du Juge is to be found on the first gentle slopes of the right bank of the Garonne valley, some 20 miles south-east of Bordeaux.

Fortunately, phylloxera did not like the damp, and this gave sufficient respite to the local winegrowers to contain the spread of the disease, notably by the use of the “Cadillac shield graft”. As we know, the plague was finally overcome by grafting Bordeaux varietal vines on to American phylloxera-resistant stock.

Camille Mathellot then undertook to build the foundations that still define the Château du Juge today. Between 1880-90, the vineyards were regrouped in one single block, drainage ditches were dug and the vines were replanted. In 1890, Camille Matellot built the château itself, and later saw his work of improving the plantations and the winemaking rewarded with the Gold Medal at the Agricultural Competition in Paris in 1898.

Camille Mathellot was a man in advance of his time, and, having the necessary financial means, build the winery in 1907, where he installed an electric generator, and the very first hydraulic press in the region. His work is the foundation of the Château du Juge that can be visited today.

The Chateau du Juge Cadillac shows great versatility with concentrated apricot, honeycomb and floral aromas, an unctuous palate, oozing with peaches and honey with refreshing acidity. A good all round dessert wine that’s great value for money and almost identical in style to it’s neighbours in Sauternes and Barsac. 37.5cl bottle

Peter Lehmann Mentor Cabernet 2014

This Cabernet is a limited release showing great depth of colour, rich blackcurrant flavours together with a firm, fine grained tannin finish- a wine of great concentration and style which can be cellared with confidence. After a short burst of heat in late January and early February, it was warm and stable for the remainder of the vintage producing richly flavoured red wines of exceptional quality. Mentor is an ideal accompaniment to duck, goose and game dishes. It is superb with oxtail, braised lamb shanks and wonderful with a fine aged cheddar.

The Black Shiraz is an extreme example of this style, deep colour, huge palate and high alcohol. This wine upholds the tradition with strong blackberry and plum aromas over toast, vanilla and spice.
