Listrac still seems to be less favoured than its neighbour Moulis, whose style shows a slightly richer fruit. This year the wines responded well to the Cabernet’s ripeness, and the leanness of fruit from past vintages is less evident. I have to confess that Moulis produces very much my style of Médoc, dense yet supple, elegant yet approachable, and in 2008 they were very much up to scratch. This small appellation is very reliable.
