Dark in color with a nose of black berries. On the mid pallet this wine is dominated by alcohol and green notes. Some coco, some herbaceous notes, even some mint. The green notes linger in the medium length finish. This is an ok wine but not really to my tastes. I would give it an 88 or so. And really, if I had more, I’d return them.

Tasting Note
Wow. The 2009 vintage strikes again! Big, eye-opening Bordeaux with tons of dark fruit embroidered by cocoa powder and balsamic notes. Plenty of weight here, with big warm fruit draped over big structured tannins. Some red Bordeaux has you turning to E for ‘elegant’ in your thesaurus – this one will send you to P for ‘powerhouse’. Drink till 2020, particularly with steak and mushrooms in a red wine jus. (VINTAGES panel, Nov. 2013)
