Chantegrive Rouge 92js 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"A major sleeper of the vintage, this blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot isanother “best ever” performance. Notes of tobacco leaf, hot rocks, sweet kirsch and black currants are impressively displayed in this medium to full-bodied, velvety textured, very seductive style of wine...90" WA 2/12 "A solid red with ripe plum, cherry and vanilla character. Full and savory with round and ripe tannins and a long, intense finish. Approachable...92" JS 08/12 "Barrel sample. Solidly packed tannins, very firm and structured, a feeling of considerable extract as well as a high toast content...90" WE 08/10
