Tasting Notes

Rich, unctuous, dried apricot and sherbet nose, excellent presence on the palate, filling the mouth and lingering for a good minute or more on the finish. Plenty of botrytis here and bags of potential to boot. Drink 2015-2030+. 16.5

Reviews & Scores

Composed of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Merlot, this large estate appears to have produced their greatest wine since the 1986. The alcohols came in at 13.9%, and the wine reveals extraordinary density, power, and richness as well as explosive fruit, and terrific acidity, intensity, and power. Yet it tastes like a crisp, delicate Margaux. Yields were 40 hectoliters per hectare. This outstanding 2009 should age nicely for 35-40+ years. (Tasted two times.) 92-95
