Chateau la Couronne St Emilion Grand Cru 2009

External Review by WineExpress.com:

This Chateau is owned by the Mahler-Besse family, owners of Chateau Palmer in Margaux and many other first class wine making properties in Bordeaux and around the world. Since the acquisition of this property in 1992 the family have done everything they can to improve quality for all new modern fermentation tanks to careful replanting in the vineyard to strict triage of all the harvested grapes. his lead to the granting of Grand Cru status with the first vintage. The vines now average 25 year of age and the 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc are aged in 35% new oak for 12 months. The wine shows distinct Bordeaux character of black currant and cedar spice. Scored 90 by James Suckling in a barrel tasting For the Wine Spectator who noted "Full bodied,...with berry and mineral character."
