Château Laffitte-Teston Madiran 2009

Member Review by steve16046:

Drank this with a steak sandwich. Pours a very deep and dark purple color with some dark red hues around the edges. As this decants, some decent amounts of cherries, red berries and some earthiness. Starts off with some dry cherries hitting the palate first and lasting throughout the tasting. In the middle and on the back end there is some earth tones and some hints of chewy tobacco. Even with some red meat, this wine is still very tannic. Leaves a long dry feeling on the palate. I really enjoyed this wine and will give it a few more years in the cellar. If you enjoy tannic wines at a great value, Madiran is a wine for you.
