Bodegas Calvo Casajus Antiguos Vinedos 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 Antiguos Vinedos comes from four small plots cropped at 3,500 kilogram per hectare, a selection of old vines then raised in new and used oak for 14 months. It has a startlingly fresh bouquet with wild strawberry, raspberry leaf and crushed stone, straight out of the mid-slope of Burgundy (in a warm vintage!) The palate is medium-bodied and very tightly wound – you can feel the tension in this wine. The finish is actually curt and abrupt, but you can sense it unfurling with time and there is a lovely spicy touch on the aftertaste that keeps you coming back. Sublime...95" WA 02/13

External Review
Vintage: 2004 04/16/2009

Die Aromatik ist intensiv: Fruchtnoten von reifen Früchten (Kirschen, Zwetschgen), feine, exotische Gewürze, die uns an Zimt und Vanille denken lassen. Die feine, samtige und zugängliche Textur gepaart mit der fruchtigen Struktur hinterlassen einen nachhaltigen Sinneseindruck im Gaumen. Das Finale - anhaltend, fruchtig und verführerisch - widerspiegelt das hervorragende Gesamterlebnis. In seiner gehaltvollen Art überzeugt dieser ausdrucksstarke Wein.
