Chateau Joanin Becot Cotes de Castillon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The high alcohol is totally hidden because of the tiny yields (25.5 hectoliters per hectare) as well as the vintage character, which is one of great delicacy and freshness juxtaposed with unprecedented power and richness. A sleeper of the vintage, the 2009 Joanin-Becot possesses terrific opulence and layers of fruit and glycerin. This beauty should drink nicely for 10-15 years. Bravo!...91-93" WA 04/10

Tasting Notes:

2009 Vintage experienced a growing season with no extremedies. This wine displays a beautiful purple color with ripe red fruit, pepper, spices, earth, and tobacco flavors. Full bodied with ripe fruit complexity, round tannins, and enough acid for a fresh finish.
